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.

The course covers site design, house design, soil, organic gardening, water in the landscape, community and alternative economics, with practical sessions on composting, no-dig gardens, and site design, and includes a tour of our whole farm. Places llimited and filling up fast!
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!
