Farm visits in the Masterton area today, NE of Wellington.
Taratahi Agricultural Training Centre is an education and commercial farm training young people in practical farming skills. We were hosted on one of their beef and sheep properties and experienced the spectacular views they have from the top of their hill country. NZ is currently very dry ( no rain for over a month ) and looks unusually brown.
Later we visited the Kershaw intensive cropping farm where they grow onions and sweetcorn for seed.
