Well done Kereru Station

Normally there are hundreds of red four wheelers traversing the countryside at a Hawke’s Bay Farmer of the year field day , but this year we would have needed a couple of days to get around the magnificent Kereru Station.

Kereru Station’s managers Danny and Robyn Angland  have now been added to the list of who’s who in Hawke’s Bay farming circles (the station is owned by two charitable trusts).

It is a 2842ha property (2114ha effective) with six staff, 15,385 sheep and 1586 cattle.

As promised – here are some photos 🙂

I have tried to make those panoramic ones bigger…. but…. technology is against me tonight!

I also have to say a big “YUM!” for the Silver Fern Farms produce eaten at the end of the field day…
