Make our magical wilderness retreat your playground, explore the almost limitless expanse of the estate, and share in our wealth of knowledge and expertise to craft meaningful encounters. Carry the experience home. We offer our passion gladly. Take it. Grow.
Forage for native ingredients then gather around the kitchen table and share in a unique cooking and dining experience. Join in lively banter and engaging discussion with our professional chefs as you learn about the preparation and culinary properties of each ingredient. Create your own garnishes and watch as a delicious meal comes together before your eyes.
Slip off into the wilderness and let us lead you on an illuminating expedition through the abundance of the forest. Search for native plants and herbs, learn about their nutritional and medicinal properties, and discover their ties with Maori cultural traditions. Sample what you find, fresh from the land, or harvest it for the chefs to use in their delicious creations.
Take a tour through the estate and immerse yourself in our core 'estate to plate' philosophy, as we lead you on a journey of discovery. Sink your hands into the loamy soil of our organic garden and wander through the trees of our orchard, then go for a drive with an eye toward spying the estate’s multitude of game animals, fish, and fowl out in the wild.
