For ninety years, five generations of the Jonkers family have farmed the land at Puketotara (the original Maori name for the land on which Jonkers Farm now stands) and operated it as a working farm. Because Jonkers Farm is 540 acres of isolated paradise, it is also a global destination for film, events, corporate functions, woodland weddings and rustic weddings. Just thirty minutes from downtown Auckland (or eight minutes by helicopter from Auckland’s CBD), situated near the wild west coast of Bethells Beach (Te Henga) Jonkers Farm boasts views of both the west and east coast, including Muriwai, Bethells Beach, Kaipara Harbour, Auckland City and the Sky Tower.
Renowned for it’s incredibly beautiful wilderness, Jonkers Farm is home to the iconic Puketotara Pa site, a fully operational airstrip and a vintage 1940’s woolshed. Diverse scenery of rolling hills, natural water ways, native bush & woodland, many vistas, flat land and vintage farm buildings have made Jonkers Farm an ideal backdrop for many film, TV shows and commercials including The Patriarch, Power Rangers, Black Beauty, Legend of the Seeker, America’s Next Top Model, Shortland Street, Broken Wood Mysteries and many other productions including television commercials for both national and international clients.
