On this small group tour:
'Friendly Feilding' as it is known, is proud to have won the annual title of 'New Zealand's Most Beautiful Town' 16 times!
The Livestock Centre hosts stock sales every Friday (pictured). Our guide will take us for a wander through the sheep pens, do their best to make sure we don't accidentally bid at auction, and explain the latest technology from our seat in the state-of-the art cattle rostrum.
The Farmers Market (also pictured) is a weekly event with a relaxed vibe and a reputation for high quality local produce.
Our visit to Feilding is timed to coincide with the annual UFBA Firefighter Driver's Challenge at Manfield. We'll be able to appreciate what it takes for the drivers to control and manoeuvre a 12-ton fire appliance!
