Chapel Hill Waiheke Island

Chapel Hill Waiheke Island

Chapel Hill, on beautiful Waiheke Island, is 15 acres (6ha) of rolling pasture, vineyards, orchards and accommodation, along with an historic church.

We bought these 15 acres of rolling land in May 2014, and the property needed a lot of work. Everyday we improve the land, buildings, or environment. Whether it's mowing, building, pest control, horticulture, farm management, interior decoration, painting, animal husbandry, olive picking, marketing, accounting, guest liaison, landscaping or further development, join us to watch the unfolding journey. Then come and stay sometime!

Maybe we do live a life less ordinary. I stood there in the dark and cold, holding a dog kennel up so that Pat could get the pellets out from under it, without hurting his nose. Pat the piglet, who I’m terrified will jump off the stone wall, whilst following the dog. Not realising that his legs are not the length of the dog’s, let alone the fact he has no knees, or neck, to talk about. He would certainly bang his nose, if he did try.

Inside the house is a mini-lop rabbit. We took her to the vet today because she was acting quite lethargic. Normally at night, just before bed, when I hear the call of the guinea pig (not before the dog has heard it), I go out to feed the guinea pig, and rabbit, in their wooden hutches. Usually the rabbit is sprightly and greets me affectionately. Not the last few days.

The vet says she is cold, yes, not that she has a cold, just she is cold. So she is inside now, not too close to the heater to cook, but close enough to be cosy. I hope she doesn’t mind that the cat carry cage she is in, is usually a dove cage, and actually it was last used by a piglet, on a ferry. But that’s another story.

Guests at Chapel Hill are welcome to bring their well-behaved pets. This lovely guest, French Bulldog 'Coco', had a ball of a time chasing resident Border Collie cross 'Louis III' on the Pegasus Lodge front lawn. The whole family can have fun at Chapel Hill! Big thanks to Ashley for the great photo.

Last week Snowball, our young white bantam, survived an Australian Harrier Hawk attack, and she's now doing well. Sadly at 8am this morning Bluebell, her father; our family bantam rooster, did not survive an attack. We'd raised him from a purebred egg, bought on Trade Me, five years ago. We loved his attitude and beauty; and his gorgeous offspring. We will all miss his morning wake up calls. RIP Bluebell, our lovely chinese silkie.

It's a cold and blustery night, so I went out to check the rabbits and chickens. I was amazed to see something had eaten all the eggs, and thought maybe our puppy had squeezed into the hen house?
My answer came when I turned around and saw a hedgehog chasing something white all around the grass. He was getting very frustrated that he could not get into our plastic dummy egg! So now we know the culprit...

It's always a pleasant surprise to find the secret laying spots of our happy, free range bantams and chickens. Today was an 'eggceptional' day at Chapel Hill.

We tasted these apricots, two years ago, on Christmas Eve, when we first looked at this property. Today these juicy apricots are perfectly ripe and inspired a delicious smoothie drink.
