Whats Geoff (the owner) of Telegraph Hill look like? August 24, 2017 13:00
Adam and Eve from The Adam and Eve Show on TV2 visited Telegraph Hill. They didn’t know what they were going to be doing at the Olivery.
They made a show of us all picking and spitting olives. It was a fun time, excuse my nervous start, we got into the swing of things eventually!
Olives and Pigs June 19, 2017 16:46
Pigs. The wild pigs at the Mohaka grove are the bain of Brad. When I visit the grove to look at the trees, the first thing I have to do is look at the photos of Brads close encounters with the natural wild life.
And it is wild.
If he spots one without his gun he’s not getting out of the tractor cab. ‘They’ll go ya’ he says. He has photos of the pigs alive and dead, taken from the cab and standing in the rows, and of course great stories about the ones that got away.
He likes to hunt, but his point is this: One pig makes a lot of damage. They root amongst the trees and destroy the ground, making unseen ruts and bumps that the tractor and gear crashes and bangs through. This slows down the speed of grove spraying and mowing and can damage the gear. “They’re costing us Geoff” he says (and they taste good)
