Greg grew up on a family farm near Methven, Mid-Canterbury. After gaining a Bachelor of Agriculture from Massey University and working in the agriculture industry, he and his wife Rachel worked in partnership with Greg’s parents to develop Mangarara Station in Hawke’s Bay. After the birth of their first child in 2000, Greg and Rachel began thinking about their legacy and the world they would be leaving for future generations.
He is transitioning the 600 hectare traditional sheep and cattle station to a farm of the future that creates balance by developing diverse, integrated, regenerative farming systems, stacking layers of different production streams and restoring ecosystems through tree planting, sequestering carbon from the atmosphere and building healthy soil using holistic grazing techniques. He is developing an economically and biologically resilient farm system. The ethos for the farm is “Optimising Life.”
