Simon and Sally look forward to welcoming you to their farm, Mahaanui. A 600 hectare hill country east coast farm inland from Gisborne or Wairoa in Tiniroto. Simon and his family have farmed Mahaanui for nearly 60 years. Sally, when she is not helping Simon or hosting visitors from all around the world, works as a nurse at the local Gisborne hospital. You may meet one of Simon and Sally’s three children visiting their family home when you visit. Now young adults, they are working on farms around New Zealand and the world after studying agricultural and veterinary sciences at university.
