Garden & Farm

The 1,000 acres of farmland surrounding The Zin House has been in David’s family since the early 1800’s. The whole of this property (known as Tinja) is certified organic and is now also incorporating biodynamics.

Each year we try to add something to the food production and biodiversity.
