“Sam and his Farmyard Friends” is a mobile farmyard, offering a range of animals for children to meet and interact with.
We visit your school, early childhood centre or event; an exciting and convenient way to bring the countryside to you.
The children will enjoy touching, smelling and playing with our friendly animals.
It’s a wonderful experience for them to learn more about animals they might never have seen before.
Children gain confidence through playing with an animal of their own choice that they feel comfortable starting with. More often than not children will end up interacting with all the animals, including a ride on our pony.
Give your children an experience they will treasure forever.

What We Do
We provide an opportunity for children to experience discover and develop an understanding of the visiting animals and have the delight in making sense of their world in a safe environment.
Through this hands on experience we impart the knowledge of the animal’s wellbeing.
Children gain confidence by interacting with an animal of their choice that they feel comfortable starting with.
Who we are
We are the Rogersons.
We are a family of six who also run a riding pony stud and are very experienced with all things horsey.
We live on the outskirts of Hamilton and Morrinsville and Marion organises pony rides, pony parties and mobile Farmyard animal trips to early childhood education centres, schools and clubs.
Sam and his Farmyard friends includes beautiful goats, a large rabbit, a kune kune pig and a variety of chickens and Sam the Party Pony, who is the star of the lot.
Sam has taught many children to ride and puts a smile on everybody’s face.
Marion’s goal is to help children learn about animals, regardless of where they live in the Waikato.
She is very experienced in animal handling and provides a safe environment for your children during the farmyard experience.
