Mt Nicholas Farm

Mt Nicholas farm invites a behind-the-scenes visit to an authentic merino sheep farm. Mt Nicholas is home to 29,000 merino sheep and produces merino wool, the highest quality of wool. This wool is used to create clothing for the world-renowned clothing company Icebreaker.

The farm is surrounded by breathtaking landscapes surrounded by mountains, thousands of glaciers, ice-carved fjords, forests, alpine lakes and vast snowfields. Indulge in a farmers cheese platter lunch whilst soaking in the panoramic views of middle earth.

About Merino wool:

Merino sheep are one of the most historically relevant and economically influential breeds of sheep that are much prized for its wool. These sheep have lived through extreme environments which resulted in the production of the strong yet luxuriously soft fleece that is highly demanded today.
