Where we're spending our year on the farm

Mount Taranaki

We're based in the province of Taranaki, on the west coast of the North Island of New Zealand.

Taranaki is a province of volcanic black-sand beaches and rolling grass-clad hills. Its most famous landmark is its iconic mountain (also called Taranaki), which rises up to around 2500 metres from its base near sea level.

Thanks to the pattern of sea breezes blowing up against the mountain, Taranaki has a fairly consistant year-round rainfall which is great for growing grass and supporting the province's main industry, farming.
