  1. Hi my partner, baby and I would like to come to your farm tour and lunch on Sunday 8th September. Do we need to pay a deposit or register or anything?

    1. Kia ora Billy. Yes, we always recommend pre-registering and paying up front to ensure a space as we only open the farm twice each year for tours. Payment can be made to: 38-9014-0367090-00. Name on account is The ECO School. Cheers, Nelson

    1. There are two holiday parks in town as well as a nice old hotel – The Grand. Also, we could ask our neighbour if you could use his sleep out if you’d be interested in that. Cheers, Nelson

  2. Hey Nelson. Myself and my partner and a couple of friends of ours are planning to come to the farm tour and lunch on Sunday. Is it ok with you if we just pay cash on the day? I’ll let you know if the unexpected happens and we need to pull out. Thanks, Billy.
