Waikoura Springs

price$20-$0 (NZD)

We are a husband and wife team farming native freshwater crayfish naturally in spring water and earthen ponds. We also farm poultry including hens, ducks and quail.

Vince Scully is a Master Mariner and published author. Mary Shanahan was a social worker and piano teacher.

Our journey has been a story of persevering with challenges. We have evolved from only selling crayfish live to producing finished products such as koura pate'.

This year we have added hens, ducks and quail for egg production around the banks of the ponds.

Good as Gold Right as Rain Tasty as Fresh Free Range Eggs!

We sell our products locally direct to shops, cafe's and restaurants and at the Kaikoura Farmers Market.
