Group Testimonial - The Mohaka River Farm provided the perfect backdrop and accommodation requirements for our annual conference and team building. The ability to book out three cottages and conference space, (including commercial style kitchen), meant we could accommodate all our staff in the cottages a short stroll away from the meeting room, and cook all food on site without the need to organise catering. The landscape surrounding the River Farm is breath-taking. A tranquil and peaceful retreat, with a short walk to the river for further inspiration. Staff at the River Farm were welcoming and accommodating to our every need. Ruminate would absolutely recommend Mohaka River Farm to any business seeking a solution to their conference needs.

Schools Testimonial - We just completed a class overnight to Mohaka River Farm - where the students, teachers & students stayed in Kingfisher's Cottage and used the neighbouring kitchen. We were well looked after by several of the families who live and work on the farm. Cabin facilities were clean (with good mattresses and beautiful linens) and affordable on a school budget. Plenty of room to store class food in camp fridge. Great marked trails for students to explore. The horse-trekking and oxen rides as well as milking cows were all great experiences for both our town and rural students. Fleur is an absolute legend with the horse-trekking - catering to both advanced and beginning riders in an intuitive, kind, responsive, flexible manner. Definitely recommend to families/other school groups.

Guest Testimonial - Gosh, I dont even know where to start, myself and 4 of my girlfriends came to Mohaka to spend a weekend in the beautiful Hawkes Bay to relax and unwind and wow we were not disappointed. Mohaka River Farm is an absolute gem that we have already booked to come back to next year on our next girls trip. Fleur was an amazing guide on our fabulous horse trek which we loved every second of. We stayed in one of the A frames cottages and the room was clean and tidy with all the amenities you could need, the bathroom block was spotless and the outdoor kitchens were super equipped and super clean. The Woodfired Pizzas were the absolute best pizzas we have ever had and the farm is packed full of beautiful animals. We had so much fun learning about the oxen training and also about the workings of a farm and the operational sides to it. We went on a couple of beautiful river walks and thoroughly enjoyed the scenery. ... Can't wait to do it again. xx
Families Testimonial - What an amazing experience. Sure the rooms are beautifully renovated, the facilities are perfect, the views are gorgeous and the location sublime but really what sets this place apart are the hosts. Good old fashioned wholesome people who know exactly how much space a client needs but ready at a moments notice to assist where possible.
It was incredible to strip away the so called modern conveniences we cling to every day and just relax in the environment. It is truly beautiful.
We were there in the middle of winter and let’s be honest, nothing looks fabulous in Winter. The building exteriors are in the middle of a repaint but other than that, they are warm, cozy and very clean. The hosts had done a great job of making the place look warm and inviting with some really nice personal touches.
The farm tours, horse riding and tour of the sawmill were perfect. The animals are in perfect health which is a good sign of a humans true nature. They were happy, bouncy animals and the owners certainly have a respect for them.
We were there as part of a large family reunion and we self catered for part of our time there. We did have our last night catered and it was just sensational. The catering staff and servers were all part of the family matrix assisting us with our stay and they were so generous and sweet. Our night was highly emotionally charged and the space for us to do our family thing was given with a quiet exit from the room and allowed us to chat amongst ourselves without anyone hanging around. So incredibly thoughtful.
As you can tell, I have used almost every adjective I know to describe this place. As a client with a rather specific need, MRF not only met my expectations but well and truly exceeded them. We have people who attended who have made plans to go back and we ourselves are looking for a few weekend getaways. I can honestly say, this place is amazing. If anyone who is looking for a beautiful place to visit with people who are truly wholesome, caring and honest - Mohaka River Farm should definitely be not only in your top 3 choices but your only real option.
Support an emerging Hawkes Bay business and a group of people desperately trying to conduct business ethically, in an environmentally responsible way and with passion.
