Behind every successful agribusiness, there’s an inspiring story

Our Clients

Rabobank’s clients range from long-established agribusinesses that have been going for years to start-ups who are just beginning their business journey.

Behind every successful New Zealand agribusiness, there’s an inspiring story to be told. We asked some of clients to share their own stories, in their own words.

Rowlands Family

Farming is in the blood for the Rowlands family, with Jock Rowlands the fourth generation to take the reins on the family’s dairy farm.

John and Paul Hickman

A desire to create opportunities for the next generation has underpinned significant growth and development on the Hickman family farm.

Davey Family

A move from England to New Zealand 18 years ago enabled the Davey family to increase their land holding and purchase an arable farm.

Dunfield Farming

When a storm flattened almost every tree on Dunfield farm at Hororata it looked like an absolute disaster - but ended up being a blessing in disguise.

Carver Family

Sustainable farming practices and a diversified drystock and dairying operation have proved to be a winning formula for Peter and Nicola Carver.

Wilith Farm

With the support of their family, Miah and Jenny manage the dairy farm purchased, naming it ‘Wilith’ as a blend of the Wilson and Smith family names.
