The Golden Bay community coffin is used about 12 times a year. It was designed in 2002 by Takaka resident Henry James, with the support of community worker Sheryl Nalder and made by local craftspeople. The coffin is housed in a barn at Autumn Farm, a gay farm-stay run by horticulturist, Peter Finlayson.
