You guys have so much HART! Thank you all for having me and the group. This experience has seriously made an impact on my trip. It was such a culture shock going from cold Auckland to a sunny and loving farm. Bill and Emma really made me feel at home. Mr Hart, you are an inspiration to not only farmers but people in general. Thanks for teaching me the parts that matter on a farm, we need more people like you! Mrs Hart, I really appreciate the time in the kitchen and out of it too! I want to go home and tell my Mum how to make something the right way :). And of course, George! I had so much fun with you. You were the part of the trip that really made me smile. I will keep in touch.

“Our stay at Mangarara Eco Lodge & Education Centre was exceptional. The serenity, peacefulness and warmth of the place and our hosts Greg and Rachel Hart was very much appreciated. Apart from the abundant bird life, quality accommodation and access to kayaking (around the lake), Greg, Rachel and the team have done a wonderful job of creating a sustainable model of farming for the future. The eco lodge is perfectly set up and caters for families, couples and groups that wish to get away from it all and experience the best rural New Zealand has to offer. It just feels like home away from home…”
