The Cadet school is based on Otiwhiti Station, a historic and iconic large-scale sheep and cattle breeding property located in the Hunterville district, Rangitikei. Otiwhiti Station is a total of 1700ha plus a finishing farm of 415ha at Westoe in Marton.

The school hosts up to 16 Cadets per year who live on-farm and are involved in practical every day farming activities with a day of theory in the classroom per week. Accommodation is located on the station with the cookhouse being an integral part of the complex.
