Over the last 7 years, we have collected various ‘rare breed’ breeding groups in New Zealand.
Glenda joined the Rare Breeds Society in Canterbury March 2013 and is an active committee member, helping with the A & P show animal display and other annual events as well as playing her part in keeping selected bloodlines going.
The last 5 years have been busy meeting and developing relationships largely supported through the nationally recognised Rare Breeds Society, closely associated with Willowbank Wildlife Reserve. Some of these breeds have less than 200 units in NZ.
We continue to develop a showing farm of these unique animals found in NZ, providing an educational experience around these rare breeds and the wide spread Bennetts Wallaby pests. We also host school and community groups, run craft classes and birthday parties.
Tucked away between Rolleston and West Melton, Glenlothian Farm retains a beautiful rural setting, while being easily accessible from the growing Selwyn area and Christchurch City.
