  • Description


    We are a typical 5th generation New Zealand family, well travelled and would like to welcome some like minded globetrotters to our farm who would love to help and have a hands on approach. Who would like to experience the real "kiwi lifestyle"!

    A large coastal property South of Auckland, overlooking the Firth of Thames. We have a Simmental & Angus Stud Farm, we farm Red Deer, South African Boer Goats, Sheep, Appaloosa and Quarter Horses, German Shepherds, we have ducks, wild peacocks, wild turkeys and wild canadian geese on our dam pond. We also have Bee hives and are increasing our bee keeping and all related organic matters, the whole natural food chain. We have native kauri and glades, waterfalls and streams running throughout the farm, which starts off light undulating and moves back to the hills, which are the highest in the area with magnificent 360 views. We are a self sustaining farm.
