Durham Farms provides premium organic food to the New Zealand market. We believe for a healthy, thriving business to exist, requires a healthy, thriving, natural environment.
We have developed a regenerative farming approach that aims to create higher profitability from a smaller agricultural footprint. This allows 25% of the farmland to be set aside to re-wilding for native flora and fauna. Our agricultures include dairy, beef, chicken, eggs, horticulture and honey, with planned expansion into natural healthcare and renewable energy. We also have a small, but growing interest in on farm luxury stays. We launched our retail brand Durham Farms in 2018, providing premium, organic produce to Northland and Auckland outlets.
