We have a small farm in Tai-Tapu, (which is Maori for sacred watering hole). Where we have cows, sheep, goat, chickens and ducks. We have been involved in farming and animals all our of lives, having both grown up on our family farms. We are passionate about sustainable living and being able to live off the land. We love sharing our passion about farm animals and living off the land to all that are interested. We both have a great sense of humour and let visitors get as involved as they want to. We offer a hands-on approach with lots of animal interaction as well as lots of information about the animals and living sustainably, understanding animal and poultry breeding. At different times of the year there are different things going on at the farm: such as new calves, new lambs, baby chicks, ducklings, kittens.
