We’d love you to join our 40+ year journey to support a resilient, healthy community living in a way that regenerates the natural environment; connected to the land, our food and each other.

Kelmarna Community Farm is nestled in the heart of Auckland’s Ponsonby area on 4.5 acres of land leased from the council. The gate to our thriving organic farm is open to the community at all times and we welcome you to come experience, learn and enjoy all we have to offer. From our Farm Shop to monthly workshops, annual events and our many volunteering opportunities — we want to share the joys of our urban oasis with you.

Please book for larger groups, leave pooch at home (we have sheep & chooks!) and
only pick fruit, veg or flowers when you’re with one of our team!
