Our Land

Nestled between the serene Waimakariri and the Rakaia Rivers in the picturesque Canterbury Plains, this farmland has a rich history that spans nearly two centuries.

Since the introduction of sheep farming to New Zealand in 1843, this region has been dedicated to raising and caring for these woolly creatures. Today, it continues to be a haven for these animals, a testament to the enduring tradition of sheep farming in this area.

This land is more than just a picturesque backdrop for farming; it is a testament to the Jones family’s unwavering commitment to innovation and sustainability in the sheep milking industry.

The Jones have poured years of research and dedication into developing sheep milk breeds, optimizing land use, and understanding the nutritional values that can be harnessed from their flock.

Their vision extends beyond just producing sheep milk products; it’s about providing consumers with options that are not only good for their health but also beneficial for the environment.

The Jones family firmly believes that sheep milk is a sustainable alternative with a significantly lower environmental footprint compared to conventional dairy systems.

Their dedication is evident as they collaborate with researchers to establish sheep milk as the “best and cleanest” choice available in New Zealand.

Moreover, they are actively working to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions, taking steps to minimize their impact on the environment.

This farm is not just a place; it’s a commitment to a greener, healthier future for New Zealand’s dairy industry.
