The stunning landscape of Muriwai Downs Farm is situated just 40km northwest of Auckland Central and within close proximity of Auckland’s West Coast. Operating as a 500ha mixed enterprise property, the new owners have a comprehensive vision to further develop the land and resource by driving excellent environmental outcomes and building on the reputation of this property by deploying fit for purpose people, livestock and infrastructure. A Farm Manager is required to drive the animal productivity of Muriwai Downs and optimise supply and demand. This will be a busy operation with many moving parts and for the right person will be a uniquely rewarding business to be involved in. The appointee will have the ability to seek out new business opportunities while working to a plan with the capital stock component, currently comprising 70 Angus cows and 1600 ewes with a contract to supply the Kaipara Lamb program. The appointee to this role requires skills in logistics and the understanding that forward planning and communication is critical. A Stock Manager will report through to this position, with this relationship being vital to the overall business. For the owners, success in this role would be described as “we are optimising our business; productivity and development are on target, the animals are performing and the team is efficient, courteous and welcoming.” The new owners of Muriwai Downs Farm are committed to a very clear continuous improvement vision for the future. There is a real opportunity here to showcase your skills and be recognised as a specialist in your field. Accommodation is offered as part of a generous remuneration package.
