The history of Pikiroa Organic Farm dates back over 90 years when Russell’s family bought the farm.
Russell is the fourth generation of the Bayley family to manage and take care of the land situated 40 min south of Hamilton.
After Russell’s bad experiences with chemicals, farming conventionally, it was decided in 1998 the farm was to be converted to an organic dry stock farm with BioGro certification. Many lessons were learned developing and adopting organic practises, such things as soil health, animal well being & pest and diseases management.
In 2006 we made the decision to convert to a dairy farm and in August that year the first lot of our organic milk was collected by Fonterra.
22 years later, our life long dream of producing and supplying our certified organic products directly to the consumer has been achieved through our partnership with TOFS and we are the proud suppliers of beef and lamb to you.
Pikiroa Organic farm has been certified organic for 22 years. All of our beef and lamb are 100% grass fed, antibiotic free, hormone free, pesticide free and chemical free.
