Milking sheep

Thanks to the innovative energy of their children, a couple farming land for 20 years on the South Otago coast and close to retirement, decided to diversify into milking sheep and in the process created a flavoured prebiotic sheep milk.

In addition to farming sheep for wool and meat, the milking of sheep has provided the opportunity to add value to the farm and mitigate farming risk through product diversification.

Activities on offer:

- Practice of sheep milking
- Farm business risk mitigation
- Cup of tea and biscuit


Otago, New Zealand
