Our story starts at our source

Products as pure as the land that made them


The Pāmu milk you enjoy started out here, on New Zealand’s rolling green pastures. Where cows graze all day on lush grass and roam happily in fresh air, clear sunshine and endless open spaces.

Getting to know nature, since 1886

We are Kaitiakitanga – guardians of nature. That means caring for and respecting our environment, animals and people comes first in everything we do. Pāmu was founded in 1886, and is still 100% state-owned by New Zealand. Our knowledge of the land and animals we farm helps us to create the finest quality products that are flavoursome, nutritious, and purely natural. As New Zealand’s largest farmer, we are dedicated to constantly improving our sustainable practices, so we leave this land better for future generations.

Our Team

It takes dedicated, passionate and expert people to farm, research, make and pack Pāmu products. Say hello to a few of them.

Meet Mark Julian
GM of Dairy Operations

“I love my job, working closely with our organic farmers and partners, so we can keep innovating together. I keep an eye on the pasture, ensure the cows are happy and healthy, and help farms look after their land for future generations. It’s vital to know our farms, to make sure each one lives up to the promise we make our customers. Only a few farms make the grade.”

Meet Aafke huisman
A Pāmu Quality Specialist

“I have a deep affinity with our animals and I’m committed to giving them the highest level of care. It starts with a natural grass-fed diet, the freedom to roam, and sustainable farming practices, which together result in better milk. By checking every process on the farm, I know that only the highest quality milk leaves the farm gate.”

Meet Tony Dowman
Organic Dairy Farmer

“My biggest passion in life is farming. As farmers, we are guardians of the land and need to be farming in ways that provide long-term sustainability of the environment, for the generations to come. These are values I share with my family and our team in what we do each day as organic farmers".
