2009 Waikato Regional Supreme Winners

Owners Gray and Marilyn Baldwin and sharemilkers Hamish and Jane Putt are in their second season together with their 410-cow organic dairying operation, just west of Putaruru.

It is, according to the award judges, “an impressive farming operation founded on excellent working relationships with sustainability in mind throughout the business”.

The Baldwin/Putt team combines top farming practise with hard work, broad experience and, the judges noted, “big picture vision, beyond their farm gate”. Their award entry was undoubtedly a collective one and mutual respect is apparent.
