Frans Janssen – Osment Dairy Goats

I am a commercial dairy goat farmer in the Cambridge Waikato area and I farm with a passion regarding pasture and soil. We farm with a firm belief that biological farming is the way of the future.

Our philosophy is about looking after the land and it will look after you.

Here at our farm, we made a conscious decision about what we eat, therefore we chose not to use chemicals on our stock or the land, instead we use 100% natural compost.

Our pasture is a mix of herbal lay, the composting method we use on the soil produces healthy volumes of pasture this improves animal health and production.

The cattle we raise on our farm are reared in paddocks with space and shelter areas, we keep a low stocking rate as this means less impact on the pasture, and improved beef from the individual animal.
