Alpacas available

Interested in finally getting some alpacas to help keep your grass down? Due to serious overstocking we have a large selection of Alpacas available now.

We have some non breeding girls and some girls that we’d like to retire to good homes and in some cases we would let these girls go at no cost.

We have some pet quality boys that we will sell for the cost of having them desexed before sale only.

From there we have some unregistered breeding stock that will be priced to move quickly.

If you are interested in AANZ registered breeding stock we have 3 classes of girls for you to consider with varying prices.

We also have 3 quality stud males for sale if you’re looking to build your own breeding program. These boys have elite genetics and will be an absolute steal.

Additionally we have some elite champion males standing at stud, for any wishing to purchase girls and look to have them mated.

If you are interested please bear in mind that you must have at least 2 alpacas as they are a herd animal.

Please contact Chontelle on or 0211900356 if you’re interested, we are located on West Coast Road and can arrange for viewing.

Many thanks

Found dog – during this morning’s thunderstorm

Found on West Coast Road. Call or text Chontelle 0211900356 or email

Hanging out calmly on our porch with our dog who is barking crazy at the thunder. I’ve put a collar on and on a chain as we have stock and I want to be cautious.

Dog is ok, calm and safe. – See photos.


Reminder – Summer Season Fire Ban.

Dear local residents,

Please find attached notification of the changes to the current fire season which took effect from the 1st December at 8am.

As well as the www. website given on this Fire and Emergency mailout, Auckland Council: may be able to help you with further information about our village and valley or your own, specific properties.

Talking to Deputy Principal Rural Fire Officer for our area, Scott Marchant, gives me no cause to be more hopeful about the safety of our village and catchment in case of a fire than any other similar manuka and tree-surrounded rural area, so please be careful.

Summer is forecast to be dry and windy, he reminds me – conditions which favour the spread of fire.

Kindest regards,

Judith Williams (Puhoi)

Ahuroa Hall Christmas Party 8th December – Pot Luck

Hi All,
The Ahuroa Hall Advisory Committee are throwing a Christmas Pot Luck Party this year and everyone is invited!
We are getting a Christmas Tree put up in the Hall, decorated kindly by the kids at the school. 
We are getting a visit from Santa and the Local fire brigade. 
We are providing a free BBQ with sausages and also some free ice cream cones for the kids!
All you have to do is bring a named and wrapped present for any children you bring – to go under the tree for Santa to hand out.  And perhaps bring a potluck salad or bread to share.  Make sure to bring some plates and cutlery too.
We are starting this end of year celebration around 3:30pm on Saturday 8th December, so make sure you come around (with or without kids) for a bit of fun and frivolity to get into the Christmas cheer!
Any questions? Ask Jo Bullock, or any of the Ahuroa Hall Advisory Committee Members
See you there!
