Real Country was founded by ‘Southern Girl’ Laura Koot in 2016. Laura was born and raised on a sheep farm in Southland and after nearly a decade in the corporate world, she switched the city and stilettos for the farm and gumboots.
Growing up hunting, fishing, horse riding, and working on the family farm, Laura has a love of the land like no other. Sharing what she calls ‘the Real New Zealand’ with visitors is what Laura and Real Country is all about.
Confidence is not something you are born with, but it can be earned and Laura believes that you can earn confidence by doing unfamiliar tasks in a safe and fun environment which helps you understand that you are much more capable than you know.

Laura is amazing at what she does. Everyone should be given an opportunity to learn how to shoot, use a bow and arrow and crack a whip. Nothing better than spending a few hours in the country. I highly recommend
Our experience with Laura was nothing short of perfect. If you’re looking for something unique to do in Queenstown, this has to be it.
Laura was amazing, she taught me the correct and safe way to handle guns and how to shoot which had me hitting targets faster than I ever thought I would. She is fun bubbly and makes you feel well at home
