WE TRIED SHEEP FARMING (in New Zealand)
One of the reasons we like traveling around the world with our home (even though we are boatless at the moment) is because it allows us to move slower. To dig in and really get to know a place. Everything from flora and fauna to the trade and infrastructure.
And here in New Zealand, sheep outnumber humans by 5 to 1. So when the opportunity came up to join a farm for a day, we only asked one question; “can we borrow a pair of gum boots”?
Welcome to the deep south! We’re officially halfway through our South Island road trip and we’re really starting to lean into the aimlessness. No plans or expectations, just the open road and whatever opportunities cross our path.
We didn’t set out to learn about sheep herding or where wool comes from, but I am glad we did. And in Orepuki of all places. A tiny township with a goldmine of kiwi character.

Our South Island Road Trip Route
What’s With The MAP?
This is a free website and app from Roadtrippers. It’s been our go-to app for discovering weird roadside attractions (hello Cano’s Castle) and wild places to camp (Trona Pinnacles). The free version is fantastic and packed with all the essential features. But, we have the Plus account because it’s better for an extended trip (like this one). Plus unlocks features like live traffic, notes for each stop, collaborating with friends, and offline maps (handy during the trip since the internet is intermittent).
