The Bint family took up 453 acres on Kohete Road, Taranaki in 1890. They arrived in New Plymouth by boat with vats for cheese making, cheese press, a separator called Alexandra, a churn, Swiss-made side saddle, stumping jacks and furniture. They moved to Ingelwood by train then carted by Joe George’s wagon to Kaimata past five houses and over three rivers which fortunately had bridges.

The house consisted of four rooms of adzed weatherboard, lined with scrim and newspaper. A shingle roof, iron chimney with bars across to hang the camp oven and big boilers for vegetables.  Ron & Rae Bint
