The Whangara Angus Stud, based in Gisborne, has recently been taken over by Tom Sanson, a well-known and respected Gisborne-based farmer with a breadth of farming experience, and his business partner and local veterinarian, Andrew Cribb. The takeover replaces owner Patrick Lane whose family have been farming the hill country in Whangara since 1929.
Tom and Andrew know that, on a national standard, Whangara Angus will be one of the best. There is work to do to get there though. By combining their areas of expertise, they will push boundaries, in order to continuously improve their stock.
