After being rather busy over the last week before Christmas with a film crew on site and the typical “everything needs to be finished by Christmas” work frantic, we are now all truly in holiday mode.

Life has slowed down and there’s nothing much to do other than the few maintenance items around the place. Fixing and maintaining fences, fixing the odd bits that break down like the perch in the chook house that broken with a big bang last night – poor chicken.

And so we decided to just post a few pictures for general entertainment and to keep you all up to date.

All at Pukeatua Farmstay wishing you a lovely and relaxed time and a Happy New 2021. May it bring prosperity and happiness.

Muddy days

It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.

Springtime again and lovely weather

It’s so nice to get outside between rain break. The weather has been warming up over the the last days and we are getting 20 deg during the day.

New critters have arrived

Our 2 little baby goats are called Muddy Valley Twi and Muddy Valley La. They love bouncing around in their paddock and up onto the things in their playground.

I picked a few pictures to keep you entertained and maybe – once we are out of lockdown – you may want to drop by for a stay and enjoy some time off. We will be opening in level 2.

Flooding – groundhog day

This year was special and I had not yet seen the water that high. Kumeu and Waimauku townships flooded too and other suburbs in West Auckland. For some it was pretty bad and I feel sorry for the affected people – and animals.

Lockdown – here we go again

If not doing office work, we fix fences, move animals around, collect, cut and chop firewood, dig trenches, build goat houses 😉 and fix all sorts of things that break over time.
