About Us

Our Story

Vast is the brand name for Landcorp Farming Limited. Vast stands for best practice in sustainable and safe farming, and for the unique provenance of New Zealand foods, nutrition products and fibre on global markets.

Our farms are in the lush green lowlands and wide-open high country of New Zealand, stretching from the Far North to the deep south. The air is crisp and fresh, the water pure and the land unspoiled.

Landcorp Farming Limited is a State-Owned Enterprise with a nationwide portfolio of farms that produce milk, beef, lamb, wool, venison, deer velvet, wood and more.

We chose the Māori word ‘Vast’ not just for its literal meaning ‘to farm’ but also to reflect the Māori concept of guardianship of the environment (kaitiakitanga).
