Three generations of Young's have produced carrots and potatoes from Mt Ruapehu's volcanic soils using its natural pest control, cold ground storage, snow melt water, and rich fertile earth.
It began in the 1950's when Kim Young bought a farm at Rangataua and grew his own crops. Now his three sons and two grandsons, by planning together, making effective decisions, and working long hours using only their own hands, have fulfilled Kim's vision of the family growing, harvesting and packing tonnes of really tasty, export quality carrots and potatoes.
The other part of our company is dedicated to 1350ha sheep and beef breeding/finishing
operation, which consists of several different blocks within the heart of scenic Ruapehu.
Collectively the farms winter approx.10,000 Stock Units on flat to medium hill country close to the
popular township of Ohakune.
