“I visited Kiwi Valley last Sunday with my 5 year old daughter and would just like to say a thank you to a young volunteer. She was awesome with my daughter who is a bit of a chatter box. First she was talking with my daughter while holding the rabbits and then later in the day while horse riding, and again this volunteer was awesome. I could see she has a genuine interest in kids and definitely with animals. Totally enjoyed her day there last Sunday with the help/patience of all your staff/volunteers but especially that one girl, so thank you and hope she’s there next time I bring my daughter which will be again very soon.”
“We love how helpful all of the young volunteers are!”
“Fantastic! My animal mad 2 year old had an absolute ball!
We will be back. Happy and well looked after animals. Delightful day.”
“Great to see extra toilets. Sinks and hand wash area is great too. Great variety of animals and the kids enjoyed the tractor ride.”
“Absolutely brilliant service. I couldn’t rate the staff high enough.
Thank you for making a perfect day.”
“Loved the tractor stopping at the top- We’ve never done that before. It was great!”
“Excellent volunteers- So patient, courteous and helpful. Great with my young kids!”
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the team at Kiwi Valley for the most amazing birthday party yesterday. Zach had a fantastic time – so much so he insisted on wearing his entry sticker for the rest of the day, on his pyjamas last night, and on his shirt again this morning! All the kids enjoyed it, and you made it very easy on us and the rest of the parents! Getting the vouchers so we can all come back just topped off the day.”
” I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Farmer Ben and the wonderful boys and girls who make Kiwi Valley such a fantastic place to visit and play. Emalie’s birthday was so amazing, the decorations and set up were more than what I could have ever expected so thank you. All the kids and parents really enjoyed the day. A birthday that will always be remembered.”
“You really do have unique volunteers and staff up there. To have the enthusiasm that your younger volunteers have really speaks volumes of the type of business that Kiwi Valley is. I was especially impressed with the staff at the pony rides. I was amazed that one of the younger members fitted my three year old and 18 month old out with a helmet correctly. Your staff member actually used the tightener at the back of the helmet to ensure that my sons had the best fit they possibly could. Talking to Farmer Crystal about the pig and her babies, and having her say goodbye to both my boys, using their names really made them feel special. We had such a beautiful family outing, and I felt it important that you and your staff know, that each and every interaction we had made our day fabulous, and you should all be really proud of yourselves for having such a spectacular team.”
“Awesome place for the kids. Friendly animals which you can get right up and personal. Helpful staff especially the volunteer teens in the rabbit/guinea pig area.”
“Fantastic! More interactive than the zoo. Perfect for toddlers and parents.”
“Love it here, so hands-on. My sons always have so much fun!”
“Absolutely amazing! Great for kids and adults, friendly staff, great price and lots to do. Great facilities. 100% perfect.”
“We chose Kiwi Valley from combined personal experience of the teachers as well as the educational programme on offer, ‘The Amaz’n Farm Experience Tour’. We were certainly not disappointed!
Under the excellent and well organised guidance of Farmer Will and Tara on the day, the children were engaged and enthusiastic from start to finish.
Your staff were friendly, professional, knowledgeable and very helpful. With so many children we were very impressed at the initial arrangements with Elly whose attention to detail is fantastic through to the hands-on tour…
The parents that accompanied us remarked how wonderfully relaxed the trip was and how well behaved the children were- this is reflective of your programme being effectively tailored to their learning needs. We were very appreciative, as were the students and parents, of the free child entry voucher at the end. A generous finishing touch!”
“I really enjoyed Kiwi Valley. I recommended it to all my friends and I will definitely come back!”
“We love this place! Layout is great, staff ultra friendly and welcoming. Love the animal interaction!”
“Thank you! We come regularly with our 2 children (5 & 8) and simply love it. Your staff are friendly and patient and the grounds are so beautiful. Thank you!”
“A wonderful, engaging experience, run by a friendly team of staff- well done!”
“Amazing place. Staff friendly + helpful. Horse rides = the best! Very impressed.”
“Staff so friendly! Lovely, fun environment. 18 month old loved it… Especially the tractors!”
