The Farm
Broadlands is a 515 ha dairy farm with irrigated pumice soils and excellent facilities including a 80 bale rotary shed with meal feeders and milk hub. We milk 1150 Friesian cross cows. Broadlands started converting to an organic system from October 2020, so you'll have a unique opportunity to learn the organics side of farming.
