Christine & Peter's Farm | Canterbury
From the farmers
Hi, we are Peter and Christine and we have farmed here at Milford in South Canterbury for the past 19 years.
Before that we sharemilked in the Manawatu and Taranaki for 15 years. We run 380 cows and employ three full time staff.
We have three adult children who grew up on the farm. We all love the environment that our farm locality offers - especially white baiting, salmon fishing and duck shooting.
Our Farm and Environmental Story
We have always been very conscientious of the effect our farming operations have on the environment because of our locality.
We are surrounded on three sides of our farm by the Opihi River, the Milford Lagoon and Burkes Creek. All waterways have been fenced off which has enabled regeneration of the natural vegetation. We are shareholders in the Opuha Dam Company which augments river flows in the Opihi River.
