Welcome to Kahikatea Farm, a 16 acre farm designed according to 'permaculture' principles. At Kahikatea Farm we are growing our soils, growing a food forest, growing our children and their future. We are growing our knowledge, and growing our community. In our nursery we grow almost 400 varieties of certified organic vegetable seedlings, edible and medicinal herbs, companion plants, flowers, shrubs and trees. Read more... Whether you have an apartment balcony, an urban garden, a lifestyle block or a large farm we can supply top quality, site-specific plants plus advice on how and where to plant.  We also run gardening, permaculture and food forest workshops and courses, and provide consultancy services.

WWOOFers/Volunteers Required!


No, not this kind of 'woof-woofer'!  We have a vacancy for one or two wwoofers (willing workers on organic farms) for the month of september to help with all aspects of the farm - planting, mulching, preparing new gardens, nursery work, mowing, fencing etc. A commitment of one month is required in return for food, accomodation and a place on our food forest workshop. No experience required but a good level of fitness is important. Contact Jo for more info.

Check out our latest plants!

Elaeagnus x ebingeii CopyAfter adding about 60 new plants to our range last year we have added another 30 or so this year already and continue to add more - remember to keep checking the 'new products' page on the website or looking for these labels in the shops if you are local. As always we have chosen plants for their usefulness in your garden, not just their good looks, so if you are after nitrogen fixers, bee attractors, medicinal plants, drought hardy ground covers, look no further!
