Moa Stone Estate

167 Cornes Road Raglan, Waikato 3296

Overview

Just out of Raglan, hidden in the hills, you find our lotus & lily water garden and flower farm. Exquisite cut flowers & lush foliage are available to enjoy all year round. We are now open to the public and welcome group bookings, organize flower, wreath & dried flower workshops, have a little artisan shop and transport and catering are available. Our flower farm is a place where you can relax, unwind and recharge in natural surroundings, viewing beautiful Mount Karioi.

Whether you need guest room or table arrangements, want to brighten up your space or have a special event coming up, we can offer you a wide selection of exceptional and long-lasting flowers. We do wholesale for florists and wedding planners. 

There are six water troughs, of which 4 are protected from predators by a large greenhouse. Choosing to grow organically, the lotus & waterlilies soon where joined by frogs and tadpoles.

Fortunately, we inherited a collection of prizewinning orchids. After a lot of work and TLC, the stunning orchids flower during the colder month’s, while the lotus & waterlilies flower in the warmer month’s. A spectacle all year round!

Our block of land has been filled with colorful flowers, brightening up the place and attracting birds, bees and butterflies.

The cut flowers have been received well and many restaurants, hotels & accommodation, shops and florists enjoy working with us and our ever-changing supply.

The Gardener

When we, Josh & Mika, started landscaping our land in 2014, the excavation work revealed a treasure of Moa stones. The extinct native Moa bird had no teeth. It would swallow stones, which would grind its food in the gizzard. Moa gizzard stones have been found on the family farm for generations. Upon receiving confirmation of their authenticity, our company name was born.

Established in 2015, we started our business growing Certified Organic crop through aqua-culture. It taught us to work in close harmony with nature. Over time, we changed our vegetable crops into a wide range of beautiful flowers and let our certificate go. We still practice what we have learned and keep growing our flowers organically, adding our home-made organic fertilizers. 

Often, the spotting of a little frog or sleeping bee in a flower bud is the reward.
