Please be mindful during lambing season

Web Secretary from Pukerua Bay Residents' Association

A request from Carrad’s farm, to please keep off the farm during lambing season until December. Walkers and bikers can disturb the sheep which can sometimes result in lambs being abandoned, especially by the younger ewes. This includes all farm access from Rawhiti Road, Kapekape Place, and Raroa Place. Please respect this request; we are allowed access to the private farm at the discretion of the owners.
