Permaculture Farm and Certified Organic Nursery

Nau mai haere mai ki Kahikatea Farm!

We are lucky enough to be kaitiaki of 16 acres which we have been designing 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 and sharing our knowledge, and growing our community. In our certified organic nursery we grow over 300 varieties of perennial vegetables, culinary and medicinal herbs, pollinator and pest control plants, shrubs and trees – everything you need for your permaculture system in a one-stop shop. 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.

We invite you in through our website to find out what we do here, to share our journey

and this beautiful place for a moment.

We hope you may be inspired to join us on a tour or course,

or to choose some of our plants to add to your own garden or food forest.

Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.

  • definitely-open-kahikatea-farm 6 April – We’re open again! - Well apologies for the stop-start but obviously the word 'essential' has been interpreted in many different ways recently! We have now been been advised by the nursery industry that we can open again for online sales as our plants are inputs to food production. We are open for orders from today and first deliveries will be sent out on Tues 14 after Easter. I also have to admit that we found out this information last Thursday but when I told… READ MORE
