|Experience a working NZ farm
When staying at Fernleaf you will be part of a working farm. As well as the fishing it will give you a chance to see a working NZ farm in action. The Fernleaf story is one of pioneer farming followed by selective breeding to develop stock with qualities valued by farmers.
The farm is 400 metres above sea level and is a mixture of easy rolling and steep hill country. Read more>>>
