Barry has always been involved in farming. He started off sharemilking for his parents, then purchased the family farm with his brother where they milked 400 cows. He eventually sold his share and bought his present 55ha effective farm near Whangarei.

After converting my current farm I was asked if I could help others looking at building new infrastructure.
