Fairview has flat contour. Soils range from peat to silt loams over clay. Like the Lowcliffe farm, Fairview has a new above-ground three million litre effluent storage tank and uses pivot irrigation. Fairview supplies Synlait with A2 milk.
Sourcing sustainable irrigation water
Lowcliffe and Fairview are investing in new wells to source sustainable irrigation water. This will replace current consented water takes from drains. The result will be an improved habitat for the native fauna which populate the drains, together with a more reliable source of water for irrigation.
