Breeding and Finishing Farm Manager - Wairarapa

Job Type: 
Full Time

27 May 22

Are you an aspirational person looking for your next management role?

Our South Wairarapa client is ready for an experienced sheep and beef Farm Manager to take the reins on this 1100ha property located 15 minutes from Martinborough.

The property has recently received considerable investment and features new sheep yards which are covered as well as 3 new sets of satellite yards. Laneways, tracking and roads provide good access around the farm.

Around 4000 breeding ewes and 200 cows are run and all progeny is finished on the 450 hectares of flats. Some forage crops, and maize and grain is grown. Some stock trading forms part of the policy depending on the season.

The successful applicant will:

  • Have experience managing high performing sheep and beef breeding and finishing stock
  • Enjoy planning, monitoring and keeping quality records
  • Be self motivated, enjoy a challenge and demonstrate a commitment to growing in the industry
  • Be a good communicator with the owner, other team members and contractors

The owner of the farm is stepping into other business roles and will give necessary support to the incoming manager.  As well as being a previous winner of the Wairarapa Farmer of the Year on this property the owner has been an investor in a successful equity partnership on another property recently. There is opportunity for a manager with proven skills to lead this business further and possible partnership opportunities for the right person.

The large family home has undergone renovation recently and has new paint, carpet and heat pumps. Wellington and the Martinborough and coastal lifestyle are on your door step yet you are located in a strong rural community of Hinakura.

If you are an experienced stock manager ready to step into a management role, or an experienced farm manager ready for your next challenge then consider this opportunity in a great location.
