The Farm

Our Farm is a 31ha (79 acres) picturesque property situated about an hour north of the bright lights of Wellington. It is a property that struck our imagination as the perfect mixed use farm and events location. It was once used for grazing by most of the animals used on the Hobbit but now has a less celebrity based focus. The beautiful terraced paddocks overlook the Waikawa river and disappear into native bush perfect for trekking or camping. We have excellent equestrian facilities, with a 60×40 arena near the river.

Our home is a relocated 1919 cottage with a large deck overlooking the farm and an amazing wrap around veranda were we relax at night and enjoy the peace and tranquillity.

  1. Good luck to you three .. I’m including Woody in this … If you need any piggy advice my sister has been a pig farmer for 30 years and had her own farm shop until recently, cured all her own bacon, made her own sausages, you name … I am sure she will have the answer if you are stuck!! Just ask me and I’ll ask Annette 😊. Most of all, enjoy it and be happy x


    • Thanks Claire. I will definitely be calling on her expertise. My first job will be to buy the starter herd so any advise on types of pigs for free range and what to look for would be great. Planning to start with a new litter from a local pig farmer friend (this is for growing practice) and then a couple of sows (maybe gilts?) and a boar to start.
