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.
Located in the lovely Matakana area, Keith and Jenny share the 160-hectare farm with 400 cows. Completing their 25th year on the farm, the pair are keen dairy farmers and have recently installed a new effluent pond management system. Both Keith and Jenny share a passion for the environment meaning fencing and riparian planting are a must.
Dairy farming runs in the family with Keith and his two brothers being third generation farmers. His two brothers farm neighbouring properties so advice is just around the corner when either of them need it.
Eager to show off their land, come along and join Keith, Jenny and their three children James, David and Chance this Open Gates.
