Agriculture

Quality soil and consistent rainfall make South Waikato the perfect place for businesses who want to make their living from the land.

The region sprawls across 1817 square kilometres of land. You’ll find large dairy, sheep and beef farms here, as well as horticulture.

The landscape is as varied as the businesses that make their living from it, with nutrient rich flat land leading into hard hill country.
