While our focus is to support community organisations, we are also committed to supporting our farming staff to grow in agriculture. Our grandparents were skilled farmers who loved to share their knowledge with those new to the industry.
Today, we farm 6,400 hectares of dairy land, carrying around 12,000 livestock. Our annual milk production is around 6,000,000 kgs.
As one of the larger farming groups in the Waikato, we continue that tradition by providing opportunities for enthusiastic, hard-working farmers to work with us as share milkers and contract milkers.
Many of our farming partners stay with us a long time, and then go on to purchase their own farms.
If you’re interested in a career in farming, and appreciate knowing your hard work will be benefitting the community in which you live, we would love to hear from you. Please don’t hesitate to send us an email HERE, and our farm managers will get back to you.

By his own admission, Andrew Lennox started on the wrong side of the tracks. So in 1980 as a third former, Lennox was shipped by his parents from Hastings to the farm of Bruce Elliot. Says Lennox:’We lived in Camberley. It was pretty rough. The Mongrel Mob were over the back fence, and I was in and out of school. In the May school holidays, my parents sent me to Bruce Elliot’s farm. I had never been farming before. But something just clicked. I picked up the shovel and I loved it. I kept coming back very school holidays – doing the hay and working on the farms.’ READ MORE >>
In 2000, Trinity Lands saw the opportunity to diversify into kiwifruit. We were growing to a size where it was smart to mitigate the risks that come with primary industries.
Our orchards are mostly in the Bay of Plenty, between Whakatane and Athenree, but we also have one in Kerikeri.
We’ve got about 195 canopy hectares; 169ha of Sungold and 26ha of Hayward Green.
We employ a mixture of permanent orchard managers and local contractors. During the height of the season, we are also enthusiastic employers of staff from the Pacific Islands, who we have found to be committed, hard working and great company.
If you would like to join us in this exciting industry, please don’t hesitate to send us an email HERE, and our orchard managers will get back to you. Kiwifruit offers excellent career opportunities for those keen to learn.
