Few stories capture today’s ‘kiwi spirit’ better than Hayes Engineering works and homestead. It’s about skilled pioneers who produced labour-saving devices for farmers. In the process they developed a brand with a worldwide reputation that lives on to this day. This Category 1 Historic Place is managed and cared for by Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga and features a large museum collection of agricultural tools and domestic wares from the19th and 20th centuries.
