Gore features shops, supermarkets, cafes, banks, services, basic hospital, medical and dental clinics, theatre, gardens and more.

Queenstown, known as the adventure capital of the Southern hemisphere, boasts breathtaking scenery, shopping, medical facilities, ski resorts, and an array of thrilling activities that attract visitors from across the globe.

Balfour, where our farm is located, is a warm and inviting community with a playcentre and primary school, while the township has essential amenities like convenience stores, pub, sports facilities, and limited services. The neighbouring town of Riversdale (10mins drive away) also has a pre-school, primary school and similar shops. Both villages are on the school bus route.
