Along with my husband Stuart, we own and operate Auckland's Eco-tour & Farm visit, which is highly rated on the Tripadvisor.com review website, and now recipients of the 2011 -and- 2012 Certificate of Excellence Awards.

Stuart has been a sheep farmer all of his working life, and we were married in 1984 (then having 2 daughter's, Mary & Emma...who are now grown-up!). We have traveled extensively throughout New Zealand, and a few places overseas; [western USA, Singapore, Malaysia, Pacific Islands, Australia, London, Paris, Holland, Greece & Mykonos]. In 2002 we decided to harness the knowledge we have of our local area, the history of our sheep farm (which has been in our family since 1922), and our passion to host overseas visitors showing them 'true' New Zealand.

I am also of Ngai Tahu Maori descent and able to give an overview of Maori culture on our tours. We are members of TIES and adhere to Eco-tourism principals (and especially that of operating LOCALLY). We struggled for many months to obtain NZ Government Law to protect parts of our farm where we were innovators of a unique-to-Auckland Carbon Credit tree planting project. [All trees planted in these areas are fully protected!!], and in 2009 we were finalists in the Manaakitanga Awards for Sustainability.
