Situated just south of Geraldine, the property of Kakahu is 1100 hectares ranging from river flats to steeper hills. 250 hectares are irrigated.

The Angus stud was started in 1954 by KH Hargreaves, Gerald’s father, and now we run 550 cows. Huge emphasis is placed on breeding animals with high production and great constitution.

400 Friesian bulls are bought in for the irrigated techno system.

Five years ago we bought the Centrewood Charolais Stud comprising 150 cows and now run 100 selecting especially for good temperament and feet as well as growth and carcase attributes.

We run 3000 composite ewe and fatten all lambs.

We are a friendly, hard working team who love what we do. It would be great to get a little help with duties ranging from planting to yard work. No day is ever the same here at kakahu.

There is also work available in the private cottages where managers and staff reside.Duties are mainly gardening, house cleaning and general maintenance in and around the home.
