Broadlands Farm | the growing arm of Kiwi Organics
Originally owned by Mike’s grandparents and parents, Broadlands farm has been in the family for over 50 years, 39 years later Kiwi Organics was born. Broadlands is the growing arm of Kiwi Organics.
Broadlands encompasses 1000 acres of tiled fertile flats, and is a mixed-cropping and livestock finishing farm. Modern machinery and techniques are used to achieve high production and efficiencies. This includes an Italian inter-row weeder and a custom designed thistle weeder. Broadlands have successfully grown kiwifruit, squash, popcorn, maize, beef, lamb, sweetcorn, beans, kumeras, basil, leek, potatoes and peas.
The East Coast has one of the highest hours of sunshine in New Zealand and is well known for not only the quality of the farm produce grown there, but also for it’s excellent award winning wines - so it is an ideal location for the Broadlands farm.
New Zealand Beef & Lamb
Organic and natural lamb and beef are bred and finished on the property. Exceptionally high growth rates are constantly achieved.
The property also showcases New Zealands only organic Suffolk Stud. Hill Country farmers are extremely keen on the breed as it is so easy to draft off your finishing line as they come up the race with their characteristic black points. It means the late lambers have a fattening lamb. Increasingly farmers are buying these low input sires that give them good cash flow.
