Located on Wairakei Estate, Earnslaw was a high-value, irrigated farm, performing profitably. The high value was sacrificed during the first year when it was converted to an organic farm in the interest of long-term sustainability and best practice for the land.
Alot has been achieved and the goal is to enhance the environment through good management, sound decision making and challenging current systems. Earnslaw has entered BFEA in order to get feedback from industry experts on how to best continue to improve on this pathway.
We hope Earnslaw will follow in the footsteps of Burgess, who won two awards at BFEA in 2018.
