We’ve been supplying Atkins Ranch for more than 20 years. My great grandfather ran the ranch in the 1930s and 40s, and my father was the rancher from 1975 before I took over in 2008. I knew I had big shoes to fill but never saw it as daunting. It was just heads down, get to work. Now it’s my chance to leave my mark. Katie and I respect this land we work on. We’d like to leave it in better condition than when we arrived. We’re really proud when we look at our animals. Everything’s in beautiful condition. I guess healthy animals raised on grass without antibiotics and GMOs comes naturally to us here in New Zealand. And that goes with the current worldwide push for healthfulness. We’re pretty happy we’re taking our quality product to the world.
