Where is it?


We live on our 40 acre (16Ha) conservation estate and flower farm and grow fresh fruit and vegetables from a bountiful garden as well as wine from a small vineyard. We have planted trees to restore the original forest cover and now have an active ecosystem with abundant bird life. We are 10 kms from Akaroa village with shops, restaurants, harbor cruises etc - Google Akaroa or Banks Peninsula for more information on the area.We are just over an hour from Christchurch and could arrange airport pickup and a car if needed.
