We have consistently followed organic practices and have never used pesticides, herbicides, or artificial fertilizers on this land, since we bought it in 1998.
Here are some photographs of this beautiful place:
Looking west (or very slightly north of west) from the house site
The green circled area above shows roughly where the property lies. The house is no longer there.

Looking roughly east (or slightly south of east) toward the house site, more than ten years ago -- when we had only begun planting fruit trees. The house is no longer there.
The property is located between Takahue (about 11km) and Broadwood (about 12km), about 30km from Kaitaia. Plenty of northern exposure for good winter sun, most of the land is flat. A slight rise up the front of a hill at the back of the property contains the extra-large double garage and house site.
Some of the organic fruit and nut trees growing on the property:
- early, middle, & late season oranges
- early, middle, & late season apples
- a pear tree that produces the best (and some of the biggest) pears we've ever tasted
- lemons (Yen Ben, Myer, and we think another variety but don't remember the name)
- nectarine (maybe 2)
- apricot (doesn't bear every year -- requires an average or colder winter)
- cherries (don't bear every year -- require a colder than average winter)
- persimmons (the sweet, non-astringent variety)
- almonds (at least 4)
- macadamias (4)
- olives (more than a dozen healthy olive trees, some fully mature and producing bumper crops annually)
We originally offered this property at $329,000 -- but then the economy tanked and real estate prices dropped, so we reduced the price to $289,000. We'd rather just build anew and stay in this beautiful spot, but we have moved on and would like the property to go to someone who will care for it as much as we have. We don't want to wait for a sale, so we will entertain offers above $237,000. At that price or higher, we will sell the property with the power connected and working and telephone line ready for (re-)connexion. Here's your chance to grab a bargain on some of the best land in the area.
We will be happy to show you this gorgeous property. To arrange a visit, you may ring us between 7am and 7pm New Zealand time. Depending on your location, ring the appropriate telephone number below. You may send an email message, but we don't check our email all that often so the 'phone is quicker.
Please excuse the somewhat blurry email address (and that it isn't click-able). That's to defeat spammers. Thanks for your understanding.
