WhenuanuiWhenuanui is a Helensville sheep and beef farm owned, and actively farmed by Richard & Dianne Kidd. It is also the proud family home and farm of their son David Kidd - the 2014 New Zealand Young Farmer of the Year.

This prime 340 hectare New Zealand family-owned farm is within forty minutes of Auckland City and just one hour from Auckland Airport. It showcases best farming practices in New Zealand and a well developed infrastructure.

There is a central race throughout the farm providing efficient and convenient all weather access to most paddocks. Stock are predominantly grass fed. Grass is supplemented with crops sown in spring to assist with fattening and finishing stock over the often long and dry summer months. Silage and hay are made for the winter months. The water supply is from natural springs on the farm and reticulated to all paddocks. Large native bush blocks, wetland and natural waterways are all fenced off from stock.

Whenuanui is a sought after film location. It has show cased some of New Zealand's best known and high profile farming advertisements including NZ Beef and Lamb, Progressive Enterprises (Countdown - Angus Beef & Lamb), Toyota Hi Lux, and Greggs' Coffee. It has also hosted some extended feature films.

The farm has 250 Angus breeding cows and works in closely with a 450 hectare beef finishing farm at Shelly Beach in South Head. Calving is in August. With 1300 ewes, lambing and shearing are also key events on the annual farm calendar. Lambing commences in late June.

The farm has a small self contained and self catered bed & breakfast cottage (Rose Cottage) in the grounds of Whenuanui's kauri villa homestead.
