We are farmers, landowners and caretakers of the land. More than 700 acres of native forest have been legally protected on the family farms. The protected trees have been fenced to stop grazing animals from eating regenerating plants.
We control predators (rats, weasels, stoats, possums and wild cats) which threaten our native forests and wildlife. The garden is also planted to attract native birds such as tui, bellbirds and kereru (native pigeons).
