The Goldpine Post – FEBRUARY 2022
Welcome to our February edition of The Goldpine Post. This month, we focus on mixed farming which involves the combination of growing crops and managing livestock.
Situated on the Wairarapa coastline near Masterton you will find Homewood Farm, owned by Andy Tatham and his wife, Jan. Homewood Farm features livestock, bees, crops and accommodation which is accompanied by a range of different outdoor experiences.
We caught up with Bruce Cameron on the Canterbury Plains to get a quick update from him on the state of fencing in the region and a detailed tip on installing a box strainer assembly.
Just outside of Timaru, Colin Hurst and his wife Janis own a 700-hectare block comprising of livestock and crops. They take pride in their family-owned farming operation and enjoy the diversity of their workload.
We look at the advantages of wood as a natural resource and how it's an effective and sustainable product for your required project. We’ve got a wide variety of products on offer, including our timber, Roundwood, GOFENCE, Farm buildings and Ecoliving range.
Our State of the Industry piece for this month is on the agriculture sector as a whole, encapsulating mixed farming. We showcase quantitative and qualitative information from an economic standpoint and gather knowledge from those who work in the industry.
