We are Elly and Kurt - by qualification we are a Chemical Process Engineer and a Diesel Mechanic/Heavy Automotive Engineer However, we both have an underlying passion for animals and the world of agriculture.
We 50/50 share milk as the 6th generation on the Vickery family farm in Tikorangi, Taranaki. We run a diverse operation, split calving 400 cows, with 100% of our calves reared to stock our dry stock blocks. With over 1600 acres of dairy, beef and cropping land, 1100 cattle and 4 fussy horses we understand the importance of quality feed. After running around after our 9 month old son, Thomas, we somehow find time to run our feed business too (we couldn't do what we do without our fab team of staff and family!).
We take great pride in bringing high quality feed solutions to Taranaki and the wider North Island - we hope you all love the products as much as we do!
Highfields Equestrian is our latest venture - we figured a saddlery made a logical addition to our existing business, Highfields Farm. We though "why not be a one-stop-shop?"
Previously The Tack Shack, Highfields Equestrian is located in New Plymouth. We are excited to bring you lots of new and exciting products and brands from New Zealand and around the world.
