A growing portfolio
In Hawke’s Bay, we are blessed with some of the best soils in the world, from the limestone hills that are naturally fertile and contain the trace elements required for optimum livestock health, to the prime cropping and horticultural land, much of it situated over an abundance of artesian water, and the moist peat deposits in the Poukawa and Te Aute valleys which are so valuable for both the Cropping and Livestock enterprises through the summer months.
At Brownrigg Agriculture we have a strong affinity with our land as the base to value in terms of both our operating business and our equity growth. This appreciation sees a real focus on the lands in our region and drives our investment decisions.
Extensive use of land leasing has enabled us to both target those areas we would prefer to own and speed the process of ownership.
Leasing is still core business for us and provides the scale and flexibility we require to best serve markets. Pastoral properties are usually leased on a long-term basis, often including a property development component, while our Cropping division leases on both a short- and long-term basis. We advertise specific land needs on our website, as required, but also welcome your enquiry at any time should you have land that may suit.
At Brownrigg Agriculture we take great pride in our land, whether we are short or longer term custodians, freehold or leasehold. We excel at development; development targeted at both productivity and the environment.
