About Us

Wycksted is our online, retail store that supply’s Wiccan, Witchy, Magickal and Mystical items that are based on ancient, traditional and modern beliefs of the Craft whilst always working with the Witches Rede.

The Black Cat that greets you as you enter Wycksted, is one of our familiars amongst many. He works with us and acts as a guardian over our Magick and spellcasting. He also features in the Familiars 'Cat'agory, helping to put his paw of approval on items for those who work amongst us in their Animal form.

The actual home of Wycksted is situated between the Kaipara harbour and New Zealand´s vast farmland country. Surrounded by ancient and native trees, abundant in wildlife and animals, it offers a peaceful and magical setting. We believe in organic and natural farming wherever possible. This includes managing our cattle, sheep and chickens to encourage a healthy and happy life for them. We follow this guideline ourselves and eat from our orchard, herb garden and vege patch. No-one is taking on a Dairy cow at this time, but maybe in the future as we currently make our own cheese, butter and other dairy delights from milk produced by an organic dairy herd in the local village.

The School of Witchery is taught here as well. It is a place to bring Witchcraft or Wicca as some like to refer to it, to the like-minded, to those not knowing where to start or for those who have once again come home to the old ways. We offer these courses and workshops in a natural environment and a sacred space amidst Kaipara's farmland and wildlife. A place where one can reclaim their ancient Pagan spirit with clan and kin. To be yourself and dance in the light, create magick and be a Witch.

Witchy note – Apart from the modern marvellous technologies of our website we all prefer to delve in nature as much as possible, choosing to live by the seasons and cycles of the sun and moon while learning from our animals and familiars whenever we can. Book reading and divination by the glow of a candles flame, hot brews in winter and cool tonics in summer as well as lots of kitchen witchery, spell crafting, fun and laughter. These are just some of the past times we share at Wycksted. 


Some of the Wycksted Witches...

We thought it was about time to add a little about our selves and although a tad shy some of the Witches of Wycksted have yet to write up their notes.
The head honcho in this crazy world of Wycksted. And pretty much ditto as to what Cerridwen said. Yes I am a Leo too and very happy about that. Animals absolutely are the most amazing beings one can hope to share their time with and we can learn so much from them. Lions, cats, bears, eagles, raccoons and possums are just some of the animal totems in whose company I enjoy immensely. I would say I am an Autumn/Winter Witch who does like her hibernation and solitary moments when I can and I prefer nature than sitting in front of a laptop or any mod con for that matter and would quite happily live in a remote wilderness surrounded by animals and books. And as for my birthday, I like to take a long leisurely birthday over the month of August.


Boris is our red bearded Celt and the go-to-guy for our sales and anything else we throw his way. He may grumble, have a weird sense of humour and wield an axe in an alarming manner but he gets the job done. And he is always happiest when everyone else is.



Hi my name is Cerridwen and I am a Witch of Wycksted. I am a proud Leo, who loves responsibility but not so much the limelight.  I am a huge bear lover and other animals such as the lion, wolf, and hawk preferring company of animals/witches over muggles.  I enjoy reading, and learning.  My favourite time of the year is Beltane, it is not too hot and not too cold so can enjoy the best of both.  I am all for winter hibernation and I also expect a whole birthday month not just the day. 



Forever patient and known as a 'Witch of all trades,' Gwen is the go-to-gal when no-one else is able. Mainly in accounts and phone work, Gwen chooses to sit behind the scenes but is always casting an eye on the Witches, Cats and Familiars of Wycksted. Favourite season is Autumn and as for animals...all are her favourites.


Although I do many of the photos for the Wycksted website, news and Instagram I prefer to keep well away from the public and only venture out when all is quiet and most are sleeping. I do however like a good feast over the Sabbat table with Samhain and Winter Solstice being amongst my favoutite celebrations. As for animals, definitely a cat person, but find all animals interesting.



You can now fly with us on Instagram and see what's happening at Wycksted with our in-house 'Witch'tographer, Farris and keep up to date with our witchy fun and mayhem.
