Back again for 2018, some Fonterra farmers are opening their gates so New Zealanders have the opportunity to go on farm, learn about how Fonterra farmers care for our environment and what happens on a dairy farm.
Only 45 minutes from central Auckland, Jamie and Lu farm, with their kids Oliver, William and Isabelle in the Mangatawhiri, Valley near Pokeno – a piece of paradise that’s been in Jamie’s family for more than 150 years. Come meet the family and their 220 dairy cows. You’ll learn about the hard work that goes in to protecting their waterways and see first-hand where your local milk comes from. If you’re lucky, you may even get to meet Oliver’s pet sheep – Thunder.
