"If you can put Future Posts in here, you could put them in anywhere!"

Tjaart Grové, Outdoor Operations Manager from Patoa Farms, North Canterbury, wasn’t joking about the challenging ground conditions as he showed us around the impressive multi award-winning, free-farmed pork operation, established on old riverbed near Hawarden.

Patoa and local contractors Summmerfield Fencing have installed thousands of 125mm/1.8m Future Posts into their extensive paddock developments, with more to be completed. The facility is a real credit to them.

“Being 100% recycled and made in New Zealand matches up perfectly with our eco-conscious and sustainable business mindset. The posts look really smart too!”
