Matariki is a time for all New Zealanders to celebrate our connection to the environment and the food resources that we are privileged to have in abundance. It is a time to think about travelling and coming together as a family and friends. The production and preparation of food and planning our extensive vegetable garden for spring are important elements of the Retreat's authentic approach to growing and serving food. It is a core part of our manaakitanga and guest experience.
