The article features the David and Helen Wollweiler farm. It is located 850 hectares at Circle Hill north of Milton in South Otago, New Zealand. The first trees were planted in one of the gullies in the area in 1974. The area also has hazelnut trees with local chocolate maker Cadbury importing a considerable quantity. House farmers are exerting effort to protect and improve the environment on their farm and the wider community. The organization aims to enhance and protect the water and wider environment because the wetland area acts as a sump for the intensively farmed Taieri plains.
