At Kepler Mountain View our water supply is fresh Fiordland rainwater which has no need for chemical processing. Enjoy drinking and showering in Fiordland’s pure rain water.
We are carbon positive with a 25 hectare forestry block planted in 1995 which off sets our own carbon footprint.
Jessie or Ray will take you onto the farm and into various paddocks so you can meet and mingle with the alpacas.

There are plenty of photo opportunities with the alpacas – they are super-cute and photogenic!
