Kahikatea Farm is a 16-acre farm designed on ‘permaculture’ principles. At Kahikatea Farm we are growing our soils, growing a forest garden, and growing our children and their future. We are growing our knowledge, and growing our community.
In our nursery, we grow a huge range of certified organic plants - over 300 varieties of perennial vegetable seedlings, edible and medicinal herbs, companion plants, flowers, shrubs and trees. We focus on perennials and self-sowing annuals which are multi-functional, hardy, and contribute to a diverse and resilient garden, farm or food forest which provides fertility and pest control from within, and which can provide a forage system of food, medicine, fuel, dyes, craft and construction material for you and future generations as well as a place of beauty and biodiversity. Our plants are available from our website as well as from Cornucopia in Hastings, and we can freight anywhere in the country.
We also run permaculture, food forest, propagation and edible gardening courses and workshops.
