Farm Manager – Hauraki Plains

450 – Cows


  • Looking for great farm management opportunities close to Auckland, Tauranga and Hamilton?
  • Wanting a manageable herd size with support from experienced farm professionals to be successful?
  • Keen to develop your career in farming in an environment where you and your family will have local support to live the life you want to live?


At Pouarua on the Hauraki Plains these boxes are the easy ticks for 2021/22.  


With community and whanau support, great housing and a great sense of belonging, Pouarua is somewhere where you and your family can settle, grow your careers and enjoy getting back to the grass roots of a real farming community.


Based within the golden triangle of easy commutes to the three major centres of Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga, along with proximity to the local towns of Ngatea, Thames and Paeroa, our location couldn’t be better.


With a clear on-farm performance strategy that’s seen more production from less cows and a commitment to nurturing the land and giving back to our five iwi owners and their hapu, your work couldn’t be more meaningful.


With five internal promotions in the last season, individual training budgets in place for every team member, and support for ongoing career development as well as investing in safe, quality assets your work life and career couldn’t be in better hands.


So what would it take to join our Pouarua family as a farm manager?

  • Dairy farm management experience – maybe you’re already a fully fledged dairy farm manager looking to shift to their next career move, or maybe you’ve got some management experience (maybe as a 2IC or herd manager) and are looking for the chance to step your career up.
  • You’ll understand the key performance drivers in a dairy farming business and will be able to tell us how you’ve made positive improvements on farm in the past
  • You’ll need to be ‘one of the goodies’ when it comes to people.  We know that having good on-farm leaders means we have good teams which means we have better businesses


This is great late season management opportunity for dairy professionals looking for stability and a quality of life for their families that’s hard to beat.  So check out the attached Job Description, and then apply directly or give us a call today on 07 870 4901 to discuss what you’re looking for and how we can help make that a reality.
