Te Papa Eco Cottage

We had a great time filming the latest episode for Thinking forward. We were in Waiuku, South Auckland on a Dairy Farm where the owners have built a beautiful eco cottage. The family who runs it have been on the same land for generations and have a keen eye on the environment and the future.
The views from the eco cottage are absolutely stunning. It seems like the perfect place to get away from it all.
Sometimes the filming was rather adventurous, as can be seen in the video below. (Taken on Kerrin’s phone)

To find out more, be sure to watch the series called Thinking Forward which airs later in the year on Country TV. The series is all about innovative rural business ideas and is sponsored by Campbell Tyson Chartered Accountants.
