We are the Hamilton's (Blair and Sarah) and Marchwood Farms is a collection of our three dairy farms in North Otago situated in the South Island of New Zealand. Originally a family sheep and beef farm, Marchwood Farms is now a successful dairy business with more than 2500 cows and 20 permanent workers.
We also offer the opportunity to world travellers to have an authentic farm experience, working and staying with us during their working holidays. Most visitors end up staying here between one and three months, because they enjoy this enriching experience the same way as we enjoy learning about people and other cultures.
One of our priorities is to guarantee a good working environment, with constant improvements of the workspace. That is the reason why we have successfully carried out many important projects, mainly since 2000. Enjoy the pictures comparing the "Before and After" of Marchwood Farms.
