Our 3000 acre Farm has three divisions, the farming sheep and beef. The Arabian/endurance division. And a machinery division with excavators.
The name of the farm means "above the clouds" in Maori. That can be literal, as we look down from high. Or spiritual - as a place of healing.

Above the clouds in the remote hills of New Zealand. No neighbors in sight. No noise. Just the sound of birdsong. Learn how farming sheep and beef in New Zealand compares with the rest of the world. We pride ourselves in sustainability. If you like cities and many people, then this is not for you. If you love nature and quiet and you are in the right place!
We would really like some help with a building project please. Working with us at your leisure. You could be experienced or just prepared to have a go.
We have private accomodation for you, or shared accommodation. We provide the food of your choice - you do the food shopping and we pay for your requirements.
Accomodation is basic but functional. You really must like being in a remote location and not dependant on people around you.

Very, very stunning place to stay.
We are surrounded by native bush. Kiwis can be heard at night time and there are numerous walks around our 3000 acres property and surrounding comservation land. A fantastic swimming hole in the Manganui-A-te-o river is nearby. The famous "bridge to nowhere" is also close to us. And "Mellonsfolly" - a cowboy town in the middle of nowhere!
