Shelly Beach Farm is a 173.7 ha organic/biodynamic farm situated on a peninsula on the Kaipara Harbour with panoramic water views, one hour northwest of Auckland. The farm's owners, John and Norrie Pearce, are world leaders in researching and implementing sustainable practices derived from working in harmony with nature. All nutrients are provided by on-farm production of fish and organic microbiological supplements augmented by dung beetles and specialist worm varieties.

The integrated activities have created a situation whereby agricultural emissions have been minimized and offset with the increased topsoil production and microbial biomass resulting in increased carbon sequestration.
