Chaos Springs, Deam Road, Waihi – 1.00pm Sunday 9th September 2012
Hosts: Steve and Jenny
Chaos Springs is a 200 acre mixed cropping farm with a wide variety of activities.
8 years ago Redwood, Cupressus lusitanica, Kauri and Eucalyptus were planted into a 13ha area that was essentially gorse.
Steve and Jenny also have native plantings, orchard (including various nuts and fruits), they grow potatoes and garlic for sale, and graze animals.
In addition to this they have a small composting business.
The farm is Biogro certified so everything is done organically.
