The Olive Grove is an organic farm near the end of the Whanganui River Road. It is quiet and rural with limited facilities and a parking place for one RV/ Campervan. There is electricity and one toilet. There is a shed with a kitchen living room.
We do not live on the farm. It is besides the Parapara Highway  about 14 kms from Wanganui. It is 4 kms from the end of the Whanganui River Road. A private campsite for tourists with a camper van or cyclists with a tent. Among the olives are many mature fruit trees, apples, pears, peaches, feijoas, raspberries etc There is usually something to eat. The livestock is mainly geese, ducks and chickens. The are plenty of natives birds and too many wild peacocks. Facilities are limited but there is water and a toilet. There is also a shed with a kitchen. It's an exclusive campsite at present, only one guest a night and you hav the place to yourself. We live in town.
The property is 10 acres. Guests can access all the paddocks, olive grove, orchard and creek bank. There is about 1000 metres of stream bank. The property is next to Lismore forest where many people go mountain biking. But this is New Zealand, don't wander on to other private property.

We come out to the property to work and feed chickens etc but usually only for an hour or two in the afternoons only. We are never there at night. So you will see us but we like to maintain the exclusivity and give the guests their privacy.
There is usually no mobile phone signal. Sometimes a text message gets through. The village of Upokongaro is 4 kms away and it has a phone signal, a cafe and a pub. There is no shop or petrol station. If you book in we will come out and check up.
Close all gates. By all means help yourself to a small amount of fruit if there is plenty. But please don't pick the last lemon. Do not bother the neighbours, any issues contact us. For self contained tourist camper vans.
