The farm name AislingQuoy means a field of dreams. More accurately it is a composite of Gaelic “Aisling” (a vision or dream) and Orcadian “Quoy” (an enclosed area where animals are kept, yard or field).

AislingQuoy is an organically run smallholding located in the beautiful rolling downs of North Canterbury, less than an hour north of Christchurch and only 45 minutes from the international airport. The small farm is focussed on sheep and goat dairy and cheese. In addition, we raise and breed pigs, chickens and ducks, maintain vegetable gardens and a small orchard, harvest, process and preserve food and are continually developing our farm and processes. We aim to sustainably produce most of our own food and a small surplus for supply in the local area.

Wander round our beautiful farmlet and meet the animals, discover lovely spots to sit and relax and admire the scenery.
