High Country Station Manager
20 Minutes to Wanaka

Lake Hawea Station (LHS) is a stunning 6500ha property running up from the shores of Lake Hawea to 1500 metres at the top. It has both many years of history and many exciting years of opportunity ahead. The new owners are a
New Zealand family unit with extensive brand building experience. They have a plan to grow the business through multi-enterprise options including hunting, mountain biking, farm development and by getting closer to the consumer with branded products in the name of value creation.

There is a significant infrastructure upgrade project underway
including Station Manager’s home, shedding, yards, Shepherds’
quarters, woolshed and farm machinery. High level farm presentation
is critical and not negotiable; LHS is a brand of quality.

The station offers true balance through irrigated flats to high country
tussock and has untapped potential of further land development
on the easy country. There is a pivot covering 54ha and a further
8ha under K-Line irrigation. The winter crop this year is 24ha in dry
land and 4ha under the pivot. The station has a Merino flock of
approximately 7700 (3850 ewes, 3850 lambs, 60 rams) producing
excellent 17.4-micron wool and 190 Hereford cows and their progeny
complementing the system.

The owners are seeking a Station Manager who can demonstrate
excellence in the fundamentals of high-country farming; the key
pillar of this business. This is not a traditional Station Manager role
as it will be suited to an individual with the courage and desire to
challenge the normal and research the new. The platform is set
to increase productivity, grow ecological enhancement, increase
diversity and embrace further income streams through tourism
options. Energy, tenacity and drive are pre-requisites whilst your
core values will create alignment with the owners. This is an
opportunity to be part of something very special.

Accommodation is by way of a local rented home whilst a new
modern Manager’s home is being built on the property. The station
is very close to amenities with great local schools and a supportive
community spirit. This is a truly exceptional opportunity to position
yourself in a beautiful part of the world with people that will make
a global difference creating LHS into an international brand of
