A big thank you to all our customers

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all our customers who supported us through the year, and for the positive feedback that you so often send. We are pleased that you appreciate the quality, that you love the products – we do too which is why we put so much effort into every detail!

You’ll know that recent times have been very challenging; the drought which lingered on over more than two years had a large impact on the farm and on top of that the earthquakes in November shook us up badly. We even had silos full of wheat thrown over, spilling contents and buckling the structure so they had to be written off. During the following days of frequent aftershocks, we had many messages, offers of help and willing hands – a tremendous support which helped us back onto our feet. Thank you very sincerely. It was wonderful to feel the network surrounding and supporting the farm and the farmers.

We’ll have a short break between Christmas and New Year to start preparations for harvest, and then look forward to a less challenging time in 2017.

May you all have a blessed Christmas, some time for reflection and a good start into the New Year.

With warm greetings from the farm team at Milmore Downs.

In this very dry year we got very little kernels, that makes the cleaning even harder. Please be aware that some white oats are left in the sample.

More Lambs available

only for purchase in our area, and some distances on the South Island are doable (I'll try to clarify with the courier if wanted).

This year our hoggets had their lambs very late, that is why more lambs even in January/February are available for purchase. Contact us via email or phone, if you are interested in an organic tasty lamb!!!
