Certified Organic Nursery
Microgreens - Herbs - Fruit & Nut Plants

Welcome to Kahikatea Farm, a 16 acre farm designed according to 'permaculture' principles. At Kahikatea Farm we are growing our soils, growing a food forest, growing our children and their future. We are growing our knowledge, and growing our community. In our nursery we grow over 200 varieties of certified organic perennial vegetable seedlings, edible and medicinal herbs, companion plants, bee plants and useful shrubs and trees. Read more... Whether you have an apartment balcony, an urban garden, a lifestyle block or a large farm we can supply top quality, site-specific plants plus advice on how and where to plant. We also run gardening, permaculture and food forest workshops and courses, and provide consultancy services.
Propagation Workshops 30 Aug & 21 Sep
Hands-on workshops covering seed sowing, pricking out, layering, cuttings, divisions, budding and grafting. Includes plenty of plant material to take home including 2 heritage variety apple trees you have grafted yourself! August date almost full, September filling - book in quick!
Our website is starting to creak after 6 years of great service (the nursery is 10 years old this year but we've only been online for the last 6 years), so watch out for a much improved website coming this year. The search function will be better, the catalogue will be downloadable, and ordering will be easier. We'll also be able to host a gallery of pictures so you can see more of the gardens, farm and nursery as well as what we get up to on our courses and tours. We're still in the development stage so if you have any ideas for improvement please let us know - the website is here for you, after all!
