Social Club

At heart, Shepherdess is a way to bring women in isolated communities together through stories and a yarn, and Social Club is our way of bringing these immersive and intimate conversations to you online. Access to events, exclusive recipes, early bird ticket sales, segments and stories curated especially for the club.

Our People

Meet our team of wāhine based across Aotearoa, from the hills to the rugged coastline, who, between juggling motherhood, farming, life, and copious cups of tea, pull together the pages of Shepherdess each and every season.

The Shepherdess Muster

A three-day festival for rural Aotearoa, unlike anything you’ve ever seen. A weekend escape and chance to unwind from the everyday hustle of life in the back blocks, this epic event is three days of connection, celebration and creation. We’re gathering women from across the provinces. Will you join us?
