At Capeview we do our best to be Eco Friendly.
The Opotiki town council is one of the most progressive in the country and runs a large recycling and refuse plant. At Capeview we recycle as much as possible including all newspaper, cardboard, plastics, tins and bottles. All vegetable food scraps go to a worm bin for vermicomposting.
All garden rubbish is composted and goes into the garden, lawn and surrounding orchard.
While our kiwifruit orchards are not organic they are run using the kiwi-green programme, where pest control is strictly monitored. If a chemical spray is recommended we use mostly oil based products.
In front of the cottage are two organic farms – kiwifruit and dairy run by other members of the Young family.
