As one of the longest established business in North Wexford, Kia Ora Mini Farm are the ones to beat when it comes to the real Santa Experience in County Wexford. Now in its 22nd year of Santa visiting the farm the guys are Kia Ora really know how to put on a show. They asked me to update their website and put up some the information about their Christmas Winter Wonderland that they put on I realised it was time to revisit the farm and see it for myself.
As a mini farm that is bustling with tourists during with summer months I was delighted to see how them transformed the entire farm into an entire Winter Wonderland and I was delighted to see this for myself as it them made me decide that putting a small bit of into on their website was not enough to demonstrate the experience that the public need to know about.
So with that in mind I know it was time to redesign the entire site and show the site visitors what they could expect when they decide to visit santa in North Wexford. We needed fresh new images and so I called John Timmons from Glasgorman Computers who is a keen photographer and also understand technology so he was an ideal choice.
Then armed with fresh images of the farm in its “Winter wonderland” form I upgraded their websites design and removed the older info on Halloween and Easter and just published the information people needed to know about the farm and what they can expect when they go. One of the key things I learned was that Kia Ora have had a Santa visit them for over 20 years, That’s thousands of kids in the area have grown up a traditional visit to Kia Ora each year. Now some of those kids have kids of their own and still return to Kia Ora and that was one of my inspirations into the revamp of the site, People with this amount of experience in dealing with children and animals and Santa all at the one time MUST be experts !
