Pottsbury Farm is a twelve acre organic Orchard specialising in sub-tropical fruits. Nestled among the trees and bird song are two private and secluded Holiday Homes. As an organic orchard there are no sprays or chemicals used. Worm leachate and castings from the worm farm are the main means of orchard maintenance.

The Holiday Homes are situated only a few minutes walk from the beach which affords safe, shallow water for children. There is a wonderful range of coastal walks and near by Kauri Point offers a popular jetty for fishing or swimming. We are situated on the northern edge of the Tauranga Harbour in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. Available all year round.

Other Environment Friendly Initiatives

Being a Maori business, everything we do is about protection (manaakitanga) and guardianship (kaitiakitanga) of our natural environment.

Dietary Selections: We offer

Vegan Vegetarian Locally sourced food

Organic Meals

Self catering, there are full kitchen facilities in both holiday homes.


The 2 Holiday Homes - Rathfardon and Clonroche - are both fully equipped with air-conditioning, fridge/freezer, automatic stove and TV and video. Clonroche has a dishwasher as well. There are two bedrooms in each - one double the other twin. There is a gas barbecue and outdoor furniture with each and in summer guests are invited to swim in our pool. Each home has peaceful orchard views and one wakens to the sound of birds. The extensive shoreline of the Tauranga harbour and the safe little Ongare Point beach can be reached in a few minutes amble. There is wheelchair access in 1 of the homes. No Smoking, no cats or dogs.
