The Orsborn family has been growing grain and making high-quality feed since the 1930s.

Meet the Wairarapa family who produce nutritious feed options for your poultry and livestock from locally grown grains.

The Orsborn family has grain in their veins – three generations have owned Sharpes Farm Feeds since 1937 when Alan Orsborn bought it from the Sharpes who started it in 1899.

Today it’s managed by Alan’s son Alastair, his son Sam and daughter-in-law Sara who live on-farm with their three children. Alastair Orsborn says the family is enormously proud to produce high-quality feed and provide exceptional service to block owners and farmers.

“It’s a New Zealand-owned, family-owned business, turning New Zealand-grown grains into nutritious feed for your chickens and other stock, in bags you
can recycle.

“We’re farmers too, so Sharpes Farm Feeds go from our farm to yours.”
