Colin & Marg

Colin and Marg Baynes


Farm owners and “salt of the earth” hosts Marg and Colin Baynes are in their early 50s and have five children.

Colin and Marg have been farming for more than 25 years throughout the North Island and couldn’t think of anything they would rather do. They love the land and especially Makapua which is more than a home and a farm to them – it is a dream and a passion.

In the 1980s Colin worked a short stint in helicopter deer recovery and has been hunting his whole life which means he can tell a great hunting yarn and his experience is invaluable in the excitement of the hunt.

Colin and Marg’s philosophy is to maintain a rewarding lifestyle of station farming. They couple this with a love of their remote block and a passion for a wild place and the wild animals that roam within.
