ABOUT CRAIGMOREFarm and Forest Investments

Craigmore manages farm and forest investments in New Zealand. Established in 2008 by two New Zealand family farmers – Forbes Elworthy and Mark Cox – Craigmore has a highly experienced team managing a mix of dairy, grazing, forestry and horticultural properties spread over both islands and more than 15,000 hectares.

Their aim is to be a long-term producer of high quality food and forest products, managing the land sustainably, and working with the best managers in New Zealand.

Craigmore works in and with the wider rural environment and rural communities. Farms and Forests are the start of the chain to bring food and fibre to the consumer, who cares about the origins of these products, and the methods used in its production. Long-term sustainability of food and fibre production is core to the Craigmore vision.

They have nine Sustainability Principles, on which the business was founded in 2009, which are at the core of their culture. Sustainability means behaving in ways that leaves the world in a better place and allows the generations that follow to continue to earn a living from the land.

Craigmore also seeks to identify ways in which they can deliver a positive impact. They regard it as a privilege and a responsibility to manage land, soils, water and other natural resources for the long-term.

“You’ll never beat the family farmer”

This was a favourite saying of Sir Peter Elworthy, founder of Craigmore Farming Co. in 1960. At Craigmore, we align ourselves, both operationally and structurally, with some outstanding family farmers and foresters, because we believe they are the very best operators.
