What is Craigmore Farming?

We are a specialist manager of farms in New Zealand. Established in 2008 by two NZ family farmers – Forbes Elworthy and Mark Cox – we now have a team managing a mix of dairy, grazing and horticultural farms spread over 15,000 hectares. Our aim is to be a long term producer of high quality food products through farming the land sustainably and by partnering with the best operational managers in New Zealand.

Forbes Elworthy tells the story of Craigmore’s philosophy and how it has moulded our farming strategy.

The Farm. Best home of the family. Main source of national wealth. Foundation of civilised society. The Natural Providence.
