Hello my name is Dana


Welcome to Piwakawaka Valley Homestead! It is my passion to help people like you embrace the homesteading lifestyle, no matter where you live.

Homesteading is a mindset, a way of life. You don’t need a big farm to start becoming self sufficient.

I am super happy that you are here, grab a cup of coffee (or tea, or kombucha…) and discover what we have to offer.
