Oliver Farm

From Omaru we traveled to the Oliver Farm to see the mother of a friend from Beijing. Over several days we learned about the farming community, how her son-in-law makes furniture from recycled native woods, and ate lunch at the local Opihi Winery New Zealander's (Kiwi's) are innovative people who adapt to changing conditions. For example, recently many converted their farms from sheep to dairy cattle. It was a real pleasure to meet Jenny and her extended family and friends.
