Reference no: 8HR1360
Posted: 24 Feb 2021
Salary: Negotiable
Location: Te Aroha, New Zealand
Duration: Permanent or Contract
Start Date: June 2021

  • Everyone knows that goats are fickle things, they need care, attention and a gentle touch…
  • Everyone knows that dairy goats is a great business opportunity and our clients have a great business that you could be part of….
  • Everyone knows that being in business takes more than enthusiasm, it takes technical skill, tenancity, guts and a commitment to the on-farm community and beyond…


Our clients are semi retiring and they’re open to a business to business arrangement that will be mutually beneficial to everyone.  Ideally buy the goats and machinery.  We see this as an opportunity for a current or prospective business owner who is keen to work in an established and well set up business and who is passionate about caring for both the animals and business performance.  So much the better if you’re already ‘goat’ experienced, but if you’re not don’t be put off - this could be the opportunity that dairy cows hasn’t been able to offer you.


Valued would be humility, generosity of spirit, respect, communication as well as  good business skills, animal welfare skills, with repairs and maintenance of machinery and infrastructure well within the comfort zone.


On offer is a business relationship in an operation across 60ha near Te Aroha.  600 - 700 goats and a production quota of 62k.  With a five year old 90 bale rotary the farm is set up to perform.  On the table is an agreement that will be based on a sliding scale dependent payout so there will always be a favourable return in it for you and the intention is to build a long and enduring relationship.  Great housing, machinery and infrastructure is all part of the deal to be struck.


At its heart this is a family business so family values are important as well as your strong business drive and acumen.  Ideally our clients want to be largely hands off but they also know that building trust and confidence will take time and that learning the farm and systems will be your priority.  So you can expect with a younger generation family member owner on the adjacent dairy operation and older owners spending some time at the runoff near the coast, you will be well supported  as and when necessary.  In no time at all you’ll be running the ship having benefited from a great handover and guidance on the farm, goats and business nuances.


If we were looking for a business opportunity in dairy  goats this year, this would be one we’d be investigating with vigour….can you afford to miss out?
