For those looking to unwind, discover the mineral hot springs or explore one of Hamilton's many world class restaurants cafes or bars. Meander through a vineyard or explore one of the many antiques and craft stores. Perhaps enjoy playing a round of golf or spend the morning strolling along the Waikato River Walkways, and around the stunning themed gardens at Hamilton Gardens.
The Shailers own and operate a typical New Zealand dairy farm in the prosperous Waikato region. They calve four-hundred cows each year, and milk the cows on average for ten months from mid-July to mid-May. They offer informative tours of the farm at 9am and 3.30pm.
Each tour is designed to suit the unique needs of the visitors, influenced by the seasonal activities at the time. Transport options include riding in a farm vehicle, driving a quad bike, or enjoying a leisurely walk.
Shailers offer their guests numerous breakfast choices, available from 6.30am to 9.30am. Their hearty full kiwi breakfast will satisfy those who want to eat once and go all day. Anyone with specific needs such as diabetes or gluten free diets will be equally impressed, as Shailers go out of their way to meet the individual needs of their guests. During the three busiest months on the farm, from mid-July to mid-October when our cows are calving, only the continental breakfast is available.
Shailers also offers the convenience of dining in with a selection ranging from light meals to three course dinners.
