The Organic Farm
Visiting the Farm
Opening hours: Saturday, 11 a.m – 5 p.m
During the season Mike is available at the farm every Saturday to answer questions about growing organically and give tours of the farm, and the geo-thermal greenhouses. You can also buy produce directly from us at the farm.
If you are looking for something specific, call ahead or send an e-mail with your request. We will try to reserve your order so you won't be disappointed if you visit the farm. Children are welcome! On most visits, you will find tea, coffee and tea buns waiting for you in the kitchen!
