Jude & Phil - Their Story
McKendry Farm Ltd.
Phil and Jude Mckendry run a 200ha mixed cropping farm at Lyndhurst, Mid Canterbury. Phil is the fourth generation to care for the land that has been in the McKendry name for 120 years. As founding chairman of the Barrhill Chertsey Irrigation Scheme, water is close to the hearts of the McKendrys and now 90% of the farm is irrigated.
We have been providing contracting services, which include straw and silage baling plus the marketing of their surplus ryegrass and wheat straw, to the McKendrys for approximately fifteen seasons.
