Enjoy fresh organic food directly from the vegetable garden and grab some eggs for breakfast from the chicken run. Explore the sites extensive shelter plantings for birds and bees, fledging fruit and nut trees over the property and extensive earthworks for sustainable water management.

Feel free to pitch a tent on the separate flat grassed area above the house that includes a firepit and firebath for campers.

We loved the rural setting of the property and being surrounded by panoramic views of the beautiful taranaki landscape. As promised the bach was very private which was very relaxing. The kids loved the experience of interacting with the chickens - feeding them and collecting eggs. We loved the eco principles of the property and the open and spacious layout of the house.
