Kia Ora, We are Dave and Sarah Robotham. Dave is from the Northwest of England and works as an Environmental Consultant.
Sarah is a born Kiwi. After meeting at a rugby match at Twickenham in the UK we moved back to NZ.
We have two children, Lily 13 and Harry 11 years.
Sarah graduated as a Veterinarian at Massey University in 1994 and after working in mixed practices for a few years, headed off for some Overseas experiences in the United Kingdom.
We are now based in beautiful Cust, half way between Rangiora and Oxford.
We are located in rural North Canterbury. South Island NEW ZEALAND.
Sarah graduated from Massey University in 1994 with a Veterinary Degree. After working in NZ for two years in mixed practices, she headed off on the Overseas Experience. Based in the UK mostly for 9 years, Sarah had gained experience working with many & varied animals. Some of these included greyhound practice, to international quarantine facilities, mixed practice, small animals to racing pigeon practice! The interest in poultry started after working in the Exotic clinic in Auckland.. After securing some land in Canterbury the journey began.
Poultry (Hen) – After about 7 years we had built up to hatching approx 3000 birds a year and shipping heritage poultry all over NZ as well as supplying locals. Over the years of owning and breeding chook’s and always trying to look after them to the highest level possible, we developed a few helpful products along the way to help achieve our goals. When the products available were not ticking the boxes we experimented and created our own. We love clean, green thinking and as we eat the eggs from our girls, we don’t want to use anything that is possibly toxic to them, us or the environment they live in. But, we also wanted something that works!
These products have been developed and are now coming online for sale so other poultry owners can benefit from our years of experience breeding and caring for chickens.
Our resident pheasant . She arrived out of the blue & lived on our property for about 5 years after managing to work out how the feeders worked!…..such beautiful birds.
