Mark & Poppy's Farm | Auckland
From the farmers
Hi, we’re Mark and Poppy and we moved with our daughter Rosa from town to Tomarata to start farming, progressing from farm worker, sharemilker, part-equity to full farm ownership.
We enjoy showing our farm to others and have had quite a few community groups and schools come to visit us to experience farming and see environmental sustainability in action.
Our Farm and Environmental Story
We care about the environment on our farm and have done lots of work to protect the land and water. We have put up an additional four kilometres of fencing around the waterways on farm and planted about ten thousand native plants. We also have 30 hectares planted with pines and another 50 hectares of native bush. We have installed a modern effluent system and we’re not afraid to ask for help from experts in their field, like Fonterra, to improve our farm for the future
