Kiwis! Looking for NZ land to live on and homestead

Kia ora—

My goal/vision is to borrow/buy/lease land in NZ and build an all natural-build cottage (cob or cob-bale), and create a homestead where we have all our needs taken care of from the land. Same as lots of people on the permies forums, with probably the main difference that I intend to use no toxic materials or plastic or machines, so having running stream water and some rain is probably essential. I’m pretty serious about living without toxic things and I avoid cars and choose only natural fiber undyed clothing, cooking pots made of soapstone, etc.

I am interested in buying land with owner-financing if anyone has some land for sale—and am also seeking opportunities to secure land other than buying land, for example, to lease some acreage on someone’s land long-term and create a homestead within a larger piece of land. I am semi-interested in an intentional community but usually they are too community-focused for me with obligatory work and meetings and no private land space. My ideal would be to have my own 10+ hectares within a larger parcel of land where others with similar interests/values are doing things like planting fruit trees and walking their goats.

Regionally: I am focusing on the north of the South Island or the north island, as I would like to grow many of the fruits we have in Hawaii.

If anyone has land/leads/contacts/ideas in NZ, please let me know!

Also I’m open to other countries but I am fairly set on NZ at this point. I have been living in Hawaii for the last few years.
We can walk to school together. And we can both read this tiny ad:
