Our friendly and dynamic team extends a warm welcome. We are an enthusiastic bunch from various ethnic backgrounds who have found a home and workplace on the farm. Here we have joyfully created a natural sanctuary where visitors can relax in a healthy and eco-sensitive environment, while appreciating the attractive wilderness setting. At Moonraker, we strive to tread gently on the earth and to establish a wholesome and respectful relationship with our natural surroundings, which we are delighted to share with you. Come and join in the fun.
