Come and get a farm tour at KoruKai Herb Farm.

Come along to our stunning place in Pigeon Bay and be inspired. We will also point out some permaculture features on our property and explain some organic gardening techniques.
On KoruKai Herb Farm everything is grown spray-free and organically with an integrated pest and disease management. We measure the nutrient density in our vegetables and herbs with a Brix meter and do microbial soil analysis on a regular basis to help us with decision making.

We implement permaculture principles wherever possible trying to close the "loop". We have a composting toilet and use water harvesting techniques like swales on contour on our hilly block.

We keep Wiltshire sheep, ducks, chickens and weaner pigs. We have a Jersey house cow and transform the milk into butter, cheese and yoghurt.


Topics that will be touched on based on the interest of your group:
Our KoruKai Herb Farm story: past, present and future
Running of the Herb Farm: Harvest, Drying Facility
Holistic Health/Nutrition/Fasting
Biological/Regenerative Gardening: The Soil Food Web
Compost Making, Worm Farming, Liquid extracts
Nutrient density (ties in with a lot of the other points)
Pest and disease control (ties in with a lot of the other points)
Self-sufficiency
Managing a house cow: Milk processing, natural cheese making, kefir and yoghurt

We also offer a range of workshops throughout the year.

Herb Farm

Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality at your beautiful oasis today. You were so generous with the information you shared about raising herbs and vegetable gardening, and livestock in tandem with the seasons. I now know more about the best fungal environment for my strawberries, to let plants go to seed (and not pull them out at the first sign of bolting) and to dry herbs naturally out of the sun.

I was absolutely blown away by your beautiful and productive gardens. You are so knowledgeable when it comes to organic growing and you have such an in depth knowledge of healthy soil, the basis for all that you do. I have been following you for some time and now that I have visited I know for sure that you walk the talk.
