Southern Centre Dairies

Welcome to Southern Centre Dairies. We have been dairy farming in New Zealand since 1999, after moving from Holland where there were limited dairy opportunities available.  Today we are still on the original farm we purchased in 1999. Over the years we have expanded to the current operation through a series of conversions, expansion and trading land over Southland to enable the purchase of land close to home.
