Stephen & Karen's Farm | Waikato

From the farmers

Hi, we’re Stephen and Karen and, along with our sons Connor and Ben, we are sharemilkers for the Lowe Family Trust on their 230 cow Mill Ridge farm near Ohaupo.

Connor and Ben are the fifth generation to farm this land. Dairy farming is in the Lowe family’s blood and they live and breathe this land around Ohaupo.


Our Farm and Environmental Story

All waterways on the farm have been fenced to prevent stock access.

Thousands of trees have been planted over the years and plenty of work is needed to keep the property well maintained while still running a business.

A six hectare area has been retired to act as a sediment trap and has been planted out to create a wetland.
