Conservation at Island Hills

 

We have made a commitment to low input free-range farming while protecting and enhancing nature

 

Conservation needs your help

The farm includes vast un-grazed forest and mountain areas including a 600-hectare QE II Open Space Covenant, the largest of its type in the Canterbury district. To protect the trees and shrubs we must control introduced possums and minimize numbers of wild deer and pigs.

New Zealand’s unique native birds are vulnerable to attack from introduced predators such as stoats and rats which need regular removal. Even pest animals deserve a humane death so we use “instant kill” traps and bait stations. The downside to these pest control technologies is that they need regular checking, resetting and re-baiting, this is where you can help.
