With a variety of room and bedding options, groups select the best configuration for their needs.  The cottages have modernized bathrooms, well equipped kitchenettes and comfortable couches for relaxation.  Group accommodations are located within 50 m of the Conference Centre and are an easy 5 minute walk from the Mohaka River that flows around our boundary.  Guests have access to the network of trails over the 280 acre farm.

Catering / Self-Catering

We are experienced in catering to groups and provide fresh, nutritious and tasty meals made onsite in our licensed commercial kitchen.  Our staff work with groups to ensure that special dietary needs are taken care of and that meals are timed to suit the group’s programme and budget.  Self-catering groups use the fully equipped Conference Centre Kitchen and are able to utilize the BBQs, smokers and pizza oven.

Conference Centre

Our Conference Centre has plenty of room for groups to run their activities be it crafts, music, seminars, or board games.  The lounge has a large log burner stocked with firewood, couches, tables, chairs, data projector and large screen and a servery for hot drinks and can accommodate up to 40 people.  Wifi is available with sufficient connectivity to engage with remote colleagues. The commercial kitchen is well equipped and there is also a large deck attached to the dining room with tables and outside chairs, grills, smokers and pizza oven. 

Horse Trekking

Mohaka River Farm is becoming well known for its exceptional horse trekking experiences.  Our head guide Fleur has a love for teaching so the trek is so much more than just a horse ride, it’s an introduction to horses and horsemanship where participants come away with new skills, knowledge and confidence.   We can take up to 14 riders at a time and will arrange treks around your group’s programme.  Treks wind gently over farm land and through a pine forest and take in stunning views of the farm, the river and the surrounding mountain ranges.

Complimentary Farm Experience

At Mohaka River Farm we value the relational approach to farming and want to share what we are learning about farming and sustainability with our guests.  If your group has time during your stay we would love to take you out and let you experience our working farm.  There are seasonal opportunities to do and learn all aspects of farm life, and we’ll work with you to create the ideal engagement for your group.

Hands-On Craft

Have you ever wanted to make a hand-crafted gift? In just over two hours, you can learn how to make a leather belt, a hand printed table runner or bag, or weave a basket.  We will fit the craft session in around your program and around the number of people you have.

River Rafting

The Mohaka River is renown for it’s clean water, steep cliffs and natural beauty and is very popular for rafting. The stretch from Mohaka River Farm to State Highway 5 is gentle with grade 1 and 2 rapids.  This stretch is also excellent for fishing.  We can arrange a rafting trip for your group with either of the local rafting companies Raft and Fish and Mohaka Rafting.
