Owl Farm is a 160-hectare dairy farm between the St Peter’s School Cambridge campus and the Waikato River.
The farm was always an integral part of the school and supplied its kitchens with produce for many years, while also giving the students opportunities for learning farming skills.
In 2015, a joint venture between the school and Lincoln University, and with funding partners Ballance, DairyNZ, Fonterra, PGG Wrightson Seeds and Westpac, created Owl Farm as one of three demonstration farms in New Zealand – the only such farm in the North Island.
The name is derived from the school’s motto: the owl signifying wisdom.
