has been involved
with wormfarming since 1998 ,
built his wormbreeding unit unaided, and then stocked up with Eisenia
Due to a period of waiting for a hip replacement the unit was neglected
from 2006 to 2008, and blackberry took over part of the section.
A re-start has been made, and new worm-stock produces
Sales of Wormcastings @ $5.00 / Kg and Vermicastings @ $15.00 a 15 Kg
bag are now available at the gate, sales are slow,
and income is needed to redevelop the wormbreeding unit.
He has sold some miniwormfarms lately, but as he is re-developing the
breeding program, there is a reluctance to sell composting worms at the
is home most of the time nowadays ,
just come to the backdoor and make plenty of noise to get him to come
and see you.

This is also a Bed and Breakfast venture Website
block of blueberries was planted in the early 1970's by the local Hotel
owner, later it was sold to the freezing workers employed
at the freezingworks [ now no longer in business] close to
The local birds harvested the blueberries for a number of years until
the grass grew too high for them to find the berries,while nobody
worked on the block.
Picking and harvesting started again, in the 1990's for two seasons
until the present owner bought it in 1993.
A home was built on the second section of the farm, and the whole was
given it's present name, Marahua
and it is now all organically cultivated.,
and protected against the birds by a covering of netting.
Sales are : Blueberries, Frozen,
and Fresh in the [Jan-Mar] season, Wine and jam is made on the premises
and you can Pick Your Own at a special price.
Farmstay Accomodation is available where you can cook [ if you wish ] your
own meal using the well equipped communal kitchen .
They have an excellent website with comprehensive information about
Blueberries, the Benefits of using them and an Album-page of photos .
