Meet the Team

Gary Smith - Store Manager 021 577529 - Gary was raised on a dairy farm in Pukekawa. From there he went to sea for a few years and now resides with his partner on a small block just outside Ngaruawahia. On their property they have two highland catttle named Monty and Mary, a horse named Dee Dee and a dog named Holly. Gary and his partner enjoy living out in the hills as it's nice and quiet but still close to town. They have visiting fantails, tuis, korero (wood pigeon) and pheasants during the day and ruru (morepork) to sing to them during the night. At present they are planting native trees to attract more bird life.

Matt McKenzie - Matt is the man who ensures the shelves are always full and that the feed he provides our clients is as fresh as possible. Matt is often found on the forklift unloading or loading trucks as well as shifting pallets around the store in between loading client's cars.




Rex Dow - The new boy in town. He's come to join us full time at the Feed Barn after spending 29 years in the Huntly Power Station. We welcome him aboard and hope he enjoys the change of pace.




Your dog is the star this month!

I have been shopping at The Animal Feed Barn for at least the last 5 years and enjoy the great service and advice provided by the entire team.
