  • Description

    Description

    The property is part of an old sheep station, originally established in the 1800's and is situated at the base of an historic mountain for the local Maori tribes. The owner is committed to re-establishing NZ native bush and fauna and creating a place of beauty with the ideal of not only becoming completely self-sufficient but also being able to share the experience of a natural environment with paying guests to relax and unwind in and come away with a chemical-free ethos to the environment.

    We are establishing a food forest, ecological garden and self catering farmstay business, in short a mini organic paradise, in the middle of a traditional rural, farming area, on the east coast of the Wairarapa, in New Zealand. Anyone with permaculture, syntropic permaculture, willingness, enthusiasm and a passion for nature's survival, is welcome to come and stay and contribute their labour and skills to help get this 58ha thriving.
