During this 30-minute experience you will learn about the history of these majestic beauties and hear all about their movie star past.

In the Woollen Mill you will see our authentic Platt wool-carding machine from 1906 – and learn how wool gets from a sheep’s back to your own. Ask for a demonstration of wool processing and spinning using wool shorn from sheep during the Farm Show. The Woollen Mill sells a range of homespun, hand knitted/woven garments along with handcrafted footwear, rugs, knitting and weaving kits. We stock a wide variety of wool and yarn to keep the most avid knitter entertained.
Many of the products in the Woollen Mill are made of pure New Zealand wool – be it sheep, alpaca, opossum or angora. There is also a selection of gifts and souvenirs we have sourced from round the world.
Three Valais Blacknose lambs, known widely as the ‘cutest sheep in the world’, have joined the wha?nau at Agrodome. The lambs can be found in the farm’s new pop-up nursery, where they are already hugely popular, thanks to their striking black faces and shaggy white coats.
Valais Blacknose are domestic sheep, originating from the Valais region of Switzerland. They are famous for their shaggy coats and spiral horns.
Agrodome is the only place for the general public to see Valais Blacknose sheep in New Zealand. Visitors can pat, cuddle and get photos with the lambs – and depending on the time of day, some lucky guests may even get to feed them!
