Brownrigg Agriculture

Agriculture & Farming

Brownrigg Agriculture is a large, progressive farming business with operations across livestock, cropping, and post-harvest processing. We are based 20 minutes south of Hastings in the beautiful Poukawa Valley.

We are the largest exporter of squash in the country, planting 2,000 hectares each year, taking the product from seed to export destination - and all the activities that happen in between. We also plant, harvest and pack onions, and are one of the largest maize grain growers in the North Island. Our livestock enterprise focusses on growing quality red meat through the winter and spring, with lamb the main item on the menu.

People are at the heart of our operation. Our skilled ag machinery operators, truck drivers, and shivers, and shepherds keep the wheels turning and the animals growing. Our export and logistics experts get our product to where it needs to go. In our post-harvest facilities, our forkies, graders, packers, and quality experts make sure our product is fit for market and ready to go. Agronomists, accountants, administrative support - people make the magic happen!
