2013 Waikato Regional Supreme Winners

Grant Wills and Karen Preston fittingly bestowed the name ‘Tremeer’ - which translates in Cornish to “happy farm” - on the Wills’ 244ha Walton dairy property when they first ventured into dairying, and land ownership.

The name, chosen in memory of a stint the couple had working at a rural castle in Cornwall while travelling, has proved prophetic, and apt. The award judges noted it was clear that all decision making for this 650 cow business “focuses on profitability while caring for the people, the cows and the environment”.
