Full Adoption Process

MyKiwiSheep allows anyone in the world to adopt a real, live New Zealand sheep!

Here’s our quick guide to how FULL adoption works…

You can opt for a quick adoption instead.

Sign Up

The first step is to sign up to MyKiwiSheep on the adopt your sheep page and choose your adoption subscription plan.

We have a standard ‘Sheep Parent’ plan, and a ‘Sheep Parent PLUS‘ plan where you get more personalised interactions and you own your sheep’s wool!

Read the full terms and conditions

You & Your sheep

We’ll match you up with a sheep (or as many as you choose) from the Hurunui Hills farm flock. Read more about them on our sheep page. 

You’ll get your username and password emailed to you, so you can login to the My Sheep page. 

Then you can start to get to know your sheep, and name your sheep whatever you like!

Updates & Messaging

You can login to your My Sheep page any time you like (yes, it’ll keep you automatically logged in) to keep up to date with what your sheep is doing, activities on the farm, videos, live streams, Q+As and more.

You can also subscribe to our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss a thing!

Little Lambs!

Some time in early spring your sheep will have a little lamb. Maybe even two! We’ll make sure you get all the cute photos and videos we can send through.

You also have the option to adopt your new grandlambs

Treats & Other Options

We give you the option to buy your sheep treats any time you like – and we’ll make sure they get delivered ASAP. You can even request a photo or video of the feast going down.

Along with treats you can also request a more personal message (on your birthday?) or another experience. Just let your shepherd know what you’re after via our contact us page.

You can see all your options on our shop page.

Your Wool

We shear our sheep in late winter. The wool your very own New Zealand merino sheep will produce is world-class! It’s the same wool used in luxury products around the globe. Read about it on our wool page.

After we shear, you’ll have the option to have your sheep’s wool turned into clothing and/or other products. We’ll send it to you (or whoever you like) anywhere in the world. 

We’ll let you know all your options and prices in advance, so you can choose what works for you.  

Being an adopted sheep parent is as easy as that!

If you have any questions, just let us know on the Contact us page.
