We run a 865 acre hill country sheep and cattle farm just 10 minutes off State Highway 1 at Mangaweka. Join in with farm work (season, weather and time depending) to get a good understanding of NZ hill country farming, take a hike over the farm, explore the river or simply relax and take in the peaceful rural surroundings and bird song. On clear nights, stars are easily visible.

Electric blankets on all beds, panel wall heaters in all rooms. Self-cater or enquire about catering options.
