2017 Canterbury Regional Supreme Winners

Stonyhurst Partnership, is a 22,000 stock unit sheep, beef and deer breeding and finishing property reaching inland to Greta Valley from the coast at Motunau.

Brothers John and Peter Douglas-Clifford have been farming Stonyhurst together for close to forty years. John and Robyn Douglas-Clifford’s eldest son Charles came home in 2012 and now has control of the day-to-day operation of the farm together with wife Erin.

The Ballance Farm Environment Award judges described Stonyhurst as an aesthetically stunning farm where management decisions had been focused on the preservation and enhancement of natural resources alongside successful commercial farming.
