9:06 pm Friday 28 November: Spring lambs
Turakina Farmer Richard Redmayne set up Coastal Spring Lamb four years ago. The super sweet and tender lamb is only available for 12 weeks a year, from mid October. The concept’s taken off and the business now has nearly a dozen farmers supplying over 30 thousand lambs to the Foodstuffs Supermarket chain. Logan Brown co owner Shaun Clouston loves the product, and says it’s like waiting for the whitebait or asparagus season to start .
Also, Don Scott uses a British made antique lathe to turn horse jumping rails and poles for construction. The wood comes from his block of immaculately manicured pines trees in North Loburn.
And, Sheep Heaven, the life style block project with a flock of ewes, takes some spring lambs to market to see what money can be made.
And, Stock rustling in Taranaki.
