Northland Field Days Dargaville 3 - 5 March 2011
Come and see us on our stand at the Northland Field Days in Dargaville from 3-5 March (joint stand with the Red Devon Cattlebreeders) where we will have some rams on show, or preferably get in first and get us to send you one of our ram photo catalogues so that you can reserve yours in advance. All rams are registered pedigree Wiltshire Horn (one of the very few registered studs in New Zealand).
Matakana Farmer's Market.
Our superb organic lamb is now available in meal-sized cuts and portions through Matakana Farmer’s market every Saturday. Read more >>>>>
We hope you like our ‘new look’ website which we have been progressively updating over the past few months. We will be continuing to revise and update the remainder of the site over the next little while, to complete the fresher look and more targeted information, hopefully making the site more user-friendly and helpful to you our customers. We now have a new FAQ section as well as the facility to subscribe to regular ‘Farmchat’ stock for sale and news updates. If you would like to give us feedback on our changes we’d be pleased to hear from you (brief and constructive comments only please).
Our exciting news for this summer is that we have available for the first time two internship positions on the farm. The interns (students) will be accommodated in our newly built farm office and farm workers cottage on the farm, and will receive extensive training and experience in the management of a pastoral organic farm and associated business, in return for their input into our work. These positions are expected to be revolving ones with spaces coming up on a seasonal basis, so applications are invited at any time from interested applicants. Our initial places are open from late summer here (February 2010) for periods of 6 months or longer. Check further details and how to apply here >>>>
