Passionate about dairy farming and native plants

Affordable, quality native plants for restoration projects

The Native Dairy Farmer combines our passion for dairy farming and native plants. In an ever changing world with farmers having to navigate regulation changes in the environmental, health and safety and animal health space, sometimes it can be hard to see the light! Despite the challenges the industry faces we are proud to be dairy farming, and are constantly amazed to see the improvements being made by farmers.

The Native Dairy Farmer is a platform for us to share day to day life on farm as well as our journey as we convert an old grass tennis court into a native tree nursery. We aim to provide like-minded farmers and landowners with affordable, quality native plants to get their projects off to the best start.
