Ngahere (which means "Bush") is a farm for both sheep and cattle: and a stud farm for the Eadon Highland cattle fold which is registered with the New Zealand Highland Cattle Society.
We are situated in Kaukapakapa, about 15 km north of Helensville in North Auckland which comprises 220 acres of easy to medium hill country with some pretty areas of native bush. The pasture is mixed, with mostly very good grazing paddocks, but there are also a few acres of rough pasture.
Our Highland Cattle Fold was started in 2005 and since then we have been building our Fold until we now have well in excess of 100 cattle.
Magna Poll Dorset Sheep
The Poll Dorset ram is an ideal terminal fat lamb sire for both commercial and lifestyle farmers.
We have calves, heifers, cows and bulls for sale, all of which have been successfully shown.
Doug began farming in 1965, working on a number of sheep and cattle farms, including PAKI-ITI Romney Stud in the North Island. Although he had a number of years living in Auckland, he kept up his interest and hands-on experience up to date during this time.
In 1992 he, wife Jenny and family moved to their present farm at Kaukapakapa, and in 1994 the Magna Poll Dorset Sheep Stud was established.
Early in 2005, the stud operation was expanded to include cattle, with the purchase of Fullblood and Pure Bred Highland cows, yearling heifers and a Fullblood bull. This is our Eadon Fold.
