Hewlett Family – Hewlett Point

Hewlett Point is a 570 acre sheep and beef farm on the south side of the Whangarei Harbour.  Our family has lived here since the 1870’s, the 5th, 6th and 7th generations currently live on the farm. We love living on this land and feel a strong connection to it – farming is part of our heritage.

We farm unintensively, giving our animals the best quality of life we can.  We use biological farming methods, which involves the use of natural fertilisers, resulting in healthier animals and people.  By being caretakers of the land, we have an opportunity to leave good soils, plenty of trees and a biodiverse environment for generations to come.
