Noel Jones - Owner, Kia Ora Stud

Noel Jones


Noel is the crazy ideas man behind Kia Ora Stud. He may be new to the Wagyu world but he has a wealth of experience at the other end, owning and working in butcher shops and abattoirs in Australia and New Zealand.

Noel founded Kia Ora Stud in 2015 as his "retirement hobby" after selling his very successful construction company NJ Construction. He spends much of his time on the farm and conducting other business however, so retirement hasn't fully started yet.

Noel is passionate about breeding Wagyu free of genetic recessive diseases, thinks outside the square and is always up for a chat.

Daniel Magee - Farm Hand, Kia Ora Stud

Daniel Magee

Farm Hand

Daniel is our farm hand and is responsible for general animal husbandry and farm maintenance.

Daniel is a Carpenter by trade and has made some incredible improvements to the farm, including building himself some accomodation!

This is Daniel's first time working with livestock and is learning to love them. Daniel's patience and relaxed demeanor is evident in our beautiful quiet cattle. Nothing much rattles the cattle, and nothing much rattles Daniel.

You'll find Daniel on the farm most days, and if he's not here he's enjoying the surf on the South Coast.
