  • Description

    Description

    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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    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! Mount Ruapehu's renown ski fields are within one hour. We have mountain bikes available for your adventures on our miles and miles of tracks.
