The Department is seeking the supply of Agricultural Contracting Services supporting Corrections’ five farms which have three areas of focus: milk production (Waikeria Prison dairy farm and the Otago Corrections Facility dairy farm), pig production (the Christchurch Men’s Prison piggery), sheep and beef production (Christchurch Men’s Prison sheep and beef farm, Spring Hill Corrections Facility (stock supplied by Waikeria Prison dairy farm) and the Tongariro Prison sheep and beef farm).
The Department of Corrections operated five farms to improve the rehabilitation of prisoners into the community by providing skills, education, qualifications and experience to enable them to get into employment and reduce re-offending upon their release.
