Our Farm

 

Waima Hill Farm is situated at the foot of New Zealandís Waima Ranges, with Northlandís highest mountains just behind us. We have been farming the land since 1993, gaining transitional Demeter certification in 1995 and full Demeter certification in 1997.

We have biodynamically transformed our land from its previously neglected state to a now productive pasture.

 

 

The Land

Great effort is taken to create wildlife habitats, protect wetlands and plant trees on the farm.

Fencing off streams has helped water leave our property as clean as it entered. Fencing off bush has ensured it has good scope for natural regeneration. In addition, the fencing is designed to create a network of wildlife corridors, aiding safe passage between areas of bush for natives such as the kiwi.

 

 

The Animals

Pasture and animals are raised in conditions that reflect the rhythms and cycles of nature thus capturing the vitality of natureís living energies.

The animals are our highest priority, being farmed to the highest standards of organic agriculture, enjoying a good life on herbal pastures with plenty of shade, shelter and crystal clear water of the Waima ranges.

 

 

Sustainability

At Waima Hill we believe in sustainable living, encompassing practices such as permaculture, growing our own organic food, adopting reusable energies, biodynamics and taking good care of our land and animals.

 

 

  • With the food we are eating we are not only feeding our bodies but our inner selves, which is why we strive to grow our own food in our organic vegetable gardens and on our fruit tress.
  • Our energy needs are catered for from a combination of renewable sources. Our small hydro-powered turbine provides electricity; solar panels on our roof hot water; a wood burning stove a tool for cooking and heating.

  • Our home is designed to capture sunrays throughout the day, a clean and natural heat supply. Water is spring-fed from the beautiful Waima ranges, and leaves our property as clean as it entered.
  • The biodynamic method of farming seeks to work with the environment and nature. The health and wellbeing of soil, plant, animal and human is nurtured. Renewable organic materials are generated and used on-site; highly fertile and productive pastures are created for our animals; biodiversity is encouraged. All without the use of any chemical sprays or fertilisers or genetic engineering.

 

 

Our belief that a quality product starts with quality soil can be experienced in the quality of Waima Hill beef.
