ABSTRACT
The article features the Pencarrow dairy farm near Ashburton, New Zealand owned by Andy and Tricia Macfarlane. The chief operational objectives of the farm include environmental, aesthetic, and landscape values with a long term goal. The dairy farm represents the tensions between the need to provide shelter and the requirement for as much open space as possible to make way for mechanical irrigation systems. The traditional philosophy of the farm, with its double row system, is to plant the slow growing trees to windward. The farm is known for its great shelter and world class productivity.
