Organic & Grown with LOVE

Michele is a keen gardner, so recently Gavin built her a Greenhouse out of old Villa windows. This area of the garden is a work in progress, but there is always something available to take home to plant or eat - from vegetable seedlings to White Sage or the popular Cardoon plants with the gorgeous purple Thistle. This greenhouse is a super productive space. There are always a surplus of seedlings and plants available.

We always have some fruit or vegetable produce available. We have a few well established fruit trees and in season, they usually over deliver - in season Apricots, Figs, Lemons, Tangelos, Strawberries and more. Michele also makes preserves - her Marmelade has a little bit of a reputation going in Wellington!

Ask about our homemade preserves etc.

Michele is a little obsessed with her free range chickens - Orpingtons are her main choice and collecting eggs, hand feeding and breeding with them brings her so much JOY. Fresh eggs are available.  Speak to Michele if you would like to purchase your very own Blue or Lavender Orpington chicken. Fertile eggs are also available at certain times of the year.


If you are planning to pop in, please make sure that Michele is home via TEXT on 021610317

In the summer, there will be days which we will be open on a regular basis -  please check our Instagram or Facebook pages for any new updates

Guests at RIVERSTONES RETREAT are free to wander around the garden etc.
