Greg and myself are passionate about our little piece of land that we are lucky enough to be guardians of for the time being. Greg is now the fourth generation of his family to be on this farm. Together with our three children ranging in ages 6 to 16, we enjoy the challenges, the rewards and the lifestyle of sheep and beef farming.
Why Nic chose Oamaru
The Little Red School House was originally a school that operated at Fuchsia Creek (about 18kms away) from 1925- 1949. In the 1950s it was shifted to its current location to be used as Shearers Quarters. It was left untouched until 2007 when a bathroom was added and was renovated in 2017 and opened up as accommodation.
What makes this Cottage unique
Immerse yourself in the farming culture by experiencing day to day farm life or a 4 wheel drive trip, horse riding, watching sheep shearing, dog trialing, a ride in a side by side motorbike, star gazing, visit the pet sheep, Roger the goat, the cows or collect fresh eggs from the chickens.
