it's so easy to feel welcome and relaxed at Cassie's Farm.

just a pity we can't stay longer. We'll be back, as we have been several times already. Ian and Trisha are exceptional hosts



About your host, Trisha

Trisha's Photo


We are Ian Brennan and Trisha Wren, a Kiwi and a Scot, who moved to this farm from Scotland in 2005.

The Farm is a 220 acre drystock farm. We currently run dairy grazers - dairy calves and heifers that haven't started milking yet - plus a few beefies, and a couple of horses. (We don't have any horses for visitors to ride, but do enquire about bringing your own horse and riding on the farm!)

Before moving to this farm in 2005 we lived outside of Edinburgh where we planted six acres of mixed woodland on degraded land in 1997. Trees grow a lot slower there than here, but most of that planting is now closed canopy and has vastly increased the local bird population. Having spent so much effort to get those trees established, it is strange to think that most of them are considered noxious weeds in New Zealand!

Our dream is to reverse the damage that has been done to this land over the past 100 years. We are gradually fencing off, protecting, and replanting with natives all 7 of the streams that start on this farm, and all of the steep gullies that should probably never have been cleared of native bush in the first place, as well as creating shelter and fodder belts on each paddock.

We began revegetation planting in 2007 with the help of volunteers who were working on the Maungatautari project. Their knowledge and experience, not to mention their hard work and enthusiasm, got us off to a great start. Since 2009 we have done most of the revegetation work (fencing, planting and weeding) ourselves. To date we've planted 30,000 natives (mostly trees) and taken 12 acres out of production.
