The land

The land is sandwiched in between the Waimakariri and the Rakaia Rivers in the rolling Canterbury Plains. An area of New Zealand that has been farming sheep since they were first introduced in 1843 – almost two hundred years of sheep farming in the region.  Looks like it’s a good fit and the Jones’ think so, too.

Sheep milk farming on the Canterbury Plains

The farm comes from years of research and development in sheep milk breeds, land use and nutritional values. It’s run by the family with the aim to provide you access to dairy products that are good for your health and the environment.

The Jones’ believe sheep dairy is an environmentally sustainable dairy alternative with a lower environmental footprint than current conventional dairy systems. The Jones’ are currently working with researchers to establish sheep dairy as the ‘best and cleanest’ dairy available in New Zealand and on ways to further reduce GHG emissions.
