• Timber

    My compost bins are built with New Zealand Standard tanelised pine or untreated macrocarpa to ensure safety and quality. This means the timber used in the construction of the Peter and Son Compost Bins meets high standards of safety and quality. This compliance ensures that the compost bins are not only durable and robust but also safe.

  • Compost Bin Lids

    Crafted from the same timber as your bins. The lids are designed to rest atop each bin, these lids can be easily slid aside, lifted, or completely removed as needed. They play a crucial role in maintaining perfect moisture levels for efficient compost breakdown, while also protecting your worms from birds. Create rich, brown compost with our added lids.

  • Hardware

    The hardware in the Peter and Son Compost Bins is all galvanised. This galvanisation makes the hardware resistant to rust and corrosion, ensuring it can withstand outdoor conditions and last for many years. The professional quality can withstand a full loads and harsh weather conditions. The compost bins are held together very securely, preventing them from shifting or coming apart.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the lids made of?

Our animal shelter is designed to comfortably accommodate a variety of small animals. It has been successfully used by owners for dogs, sheep, pigs, and goats. The shelter is also suitable for miniature horses. Its versatile design ensures a safe and comfortable environment for your beloved pets or farm animals. Please note that the suitability of the shelter may depend on the specific needs and size of the animal.

What is the difference between pine and macrocarpa?

Tanalised pine is pressure-treated with preservaites for durability and resistance to decay and insects. Natural macrocarpa has inherent oils that deter insects and fungal growth, making it durable outdoors without any preservative treatment.

Do i need a 1, 2 or 3 bin compost system?

Choosing the right size of a compost system depends on several factors: The volume of waste generated, the garden size, space for a composting system, and the frequency of usage.

What can be composted?

You can compost fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, tea bags, eggshells, yard waste like grass clippings and dry leaves, and non-glossy paper. Avoid composting meat, dairy, diseased plants, and anything treated with chemicals to prevent attracting pests and creating unpleasant odors.

Does compost attract pests?

If not properly managed compost can attract pests. Avoid adding meat, dairy, or cooked food to your compost. Regular turning and proper layering can also help deter pests. Using a compost bin lid will further prevent unwanted visitors.

“If I could talk to animals, just imagine it” lyrics to popular Sammy Davis Junior Song.

We ordered a sheep shelter from Tony and were delighted with the quality when it arrived. Sammy Davis Junior and David Bowie, our grandchildren’s ex Ag Day lambs, are also very pleased. Throughout the process, Tony’s communication was first class while discussing the flooring options and delivery. He helped unload and position the shelter which went above and beyond what was expected. We recommend Tony’s workmanship and general approach without hesitation. Philip and Jenny

We are delighted with our two Cape Cod chairs. They are sturdy and stylish. Most importantly for us they do not budge in a breeze - we live in a high wind zone and wanted something that would stay put. Tony was excellent to deal with and even dropped the chairs off to us on his family holiday to the South Island. Truly great quality and service.

Very happy with the bench as I am a hunter so having this bench sitting out by my chiller is very handy when cutting my meat. Nice solid build and like the extra storage bench underneath.
Thank you very much guys.

Very good communication and service

Best filleting table

Looked at a lot of options before finding Peter&Son.
I wanted more height so I wasn’t bending and space to put fillets as well as room for two to use. What I got is amazing, plenty of space and good height. Thoroughly recommend.


Thanks for your efforts!

Pig shelter

I ordered 3 shelters and very happy with their construction, delivery and professional service from this company. Highly recommend people to deal with Peter & Son.
