Origin South is passionate about raising high-quality lamb and believe that the best way to rear animals is to do so the old fashioned way, allowing nature to take the time it needs to produce the best quality and tenderness. Flaxbourne Pure, the first sheep farm on the South Island of New Zealand, was created with a promise to always provide pasture-raised and GMO-free lamb raised without antibiotics.
The Homestead is one of the farms that make up what was once the 66,000 acre Flaxbourne Station. Six generations of Loe family have lived here, where they have learned to make the best of the environment, producing exquisite tasting lamb, from this Marlborough “terrior”. High sunshine hours, the salt-licked coastal landscape and careful farming practices are all keys to naturally good stock health and their low carbon footprint.
