Farm

The St Andrew’s College Farm provides senior Agriculture students with an unparalleled opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in a range of farming disciplines, from stock handling to farm maintenance and business management.

Located near Cave, inland from Timaru in South Canterbury, the farm occupies approximately 900 hectares and is leased from the Burnett Valley Trust.

The farm is run as a commercial operation and is stocked with ewes, hoggets and Angus breeding cows. A portion of the land is used as a commercial forestry venture.

Senior Agriculture students spend time at the St Andrew’s College Farm several times each year, and also visit several Old Collegian’s farms during their studies.
