Jamie is the current farmer on Te Kainga and ideas man behind Te Kainga Meat Co. With a B Com Ag from Lincoln University he has taken on the land after returning from his travels to continue the family farming tradition. He has spent 2 years travelling and working based in the UK and has made a footstep on every continent. Those footsteps are now confined to 600 acres but the back pack is still sitting on hand. With experience in meat retail with Affco Meats, Jamie has seen the cycle from Farm to Plate. Jamie aims to connect customers with Te Kainga to give people a degree of belonging to this cycle and trust in its origins. Liking the quiet things he can be found tending his veggie plot on the weekend or sneaking back to nature for a tramp and some billy tea by the fireside when the farm allows.

Pad and Dot

The old and the new. Mr Pad is our old huntaway in residence at Te Kainga. Dot is our new recruit. Hailing from Te Kuiti, she is our new eye dog on the scene and learning the ropes quickly. Dedicated to life on the farm.

Coming back to his Mangatawhiri roots he lives on the farm and with his trusty dog Charles keeps a keen eye on things. Scott can be seen with TKMC very occasionally when duty calls. Mystery Creek Fieldays seems to get him off the farm and behind a BBQ.
