A place for family and friends is what we built in 2011. Several years later we want to share Lansdowne with one guest group at a time.
Means that you are producing more than you are consuming. Water and most of our heat is by solar and wood.
Waste is recycled or disposed without harm. Lansdowne Farm producesmuch more than it consumes.
Charles H. Upham, VC + Bar
From its foundation in 1947 until 1984 Lansdowne was the home farm of New Zealand's most decorated soldier. It is an honour to be farming “Charlie's” place, a privilege to share the story of his remarkable life.
We raise healthy, stress-free - and maybe even happy - cattle and sheep. That's our principle business. Click to go to our PASTORAL FARMING page.
