Anthea & Lyndon
Lyndon and Anthea with their 3 children Maddie, Fletcher, and Hazel have been dairy farming for 12 years.
Lyndon and Anthea are passionate about constant change and adapting their farming practices to be modern and efficient.
They recognise and value the importance of a strong team, and strive to create a fun and flexible work environment.
They have been farming in Balfour for 8 years. They were initially drawn to the area for the opportunity to grow their farming business but have grown to love Northern Southland for its warm community, amazing schooling, sporting opportunities and its proximity to some of the best outdoor activities in NZ.
A little about their farm: "We milk 850 Friesian cows on 326 hectares of flat to rolling land. We have a fully automated 64 bale rotary shed with automatic cup removers, protrak, and auto-draft. We have a full in-shed feeding system. We do all of our own ag work and spread most of our own fertiliser. This enables us to provide an opportunity for a variety of tasks within our farming business. We currently run a 4 on 2 off roster."
