Bill, Sally and their three sons own Kotare, a sheep, beef and deer breeding property west of Gisborne. Their aim is to keep the farm moving forward to ensure the family business is around for a long time. Being part of First Light is an important step toward achieving this goal as the well thought out supply chain, attitude to quality and shared farmer knowledge helps control the variables as much as possible.

Bill and Sally feel a real harmony between grower and consumer. “What we do is sustainable and honest. It’s great to genuinely feel you’re producing a product that you yourself would be happy to consume.” And the best way the Gaddum’s consume their product — “Pan fried. Keep it simple. Don’t dress it up too much.”
