OUR STORY

George kicked off his farming career as a 16 year old shepherd in the Wairarapa. Luce pursued a Veterinary Physio dream. Their two paths intertwined, resulting not only in the birth of three children, but an insatiable desire to run a high quality stud farm. Grassendale has now grown into a premium provider of superior genetics packages.
