Scheres Brothers Farm Group

Background

The Scheres family farm, today run by Thomas Scheres and his wife Andrea, is part of the Scheres Brothers Farm Group in Lichfield, in New Zealand’s North Island.

The original farm was established by Thomas’ grandparents in the 1950s, and Thomas’ cousins run the other farms in the group.
As a 50/50 share milker, Thomas owns the herd, and his dad Peter owns the land.

His herd stands at 550 strong, including 420 milking cows.
