The Farmland Story

Farmland Foods started in a family butcher shop over 50 years ago, and now three generations later we’re one of New Zealand’s leading smallgoods producers.

Still passionately family run on our farm in Bulls in the Rangitikei district, we employ over 100 local staff and we’ve invested in state of the art manufacturing and equipment to produce quality meats for you.

The tradition continues, from our humble beginnings to today and beyond, we’ve always been committed to quality and innovation – look for our Farmland products at the deli counter and chilled meats department in supermarkets throughout the country.

Honour the Meat


Farmland are proud of our heritage and the way we do things with the utmost love, care and attention. We take great pride in selecting the best quality meats and preparing them ready for your enjoyment. We ‘honour the meat’ so you can honour it in your own way.


At Farmland, we use pure artesian water sourced from our own wells on the farm, up to 262m below the surface. Tested for quality, filtered and softened, we then use this water as needed in our production plant – it’s what helps make the Farmland difference.

Our People

At Farmland, our family have grown the business into the well-established company it is today. We recognise the fact that we could not have done this without our most important asset – our loyal and hardworking team.

We consider ourselves ‘One Farmland’ as we believe that thinking, acting and working as one team is the key component to our ongoing success.

We know that happy teams are made up of well-informed, productive, positive people enjoying their work and achievements, so to that end we base all our actions on our six core values that have shaped the success of Farmland over the years – Success, Passion, Integrity, Relentless focus, Innovation, and Take ownership. These ‘SPIRIT’ values influence our work on a daily basis and are a significant part of career development with Farmland.

We are proud of all the people who have brought this family business to where it is today and who are working hard to take it even further forward, tomorrow.

‘One Farmland’ is where we work, grow and have fun together while striving to become the brand of choice for New Zealanders.
