Owner and Manager of Blue Duck Station, Dan has always been a keen bushman and hunter. Brought up on a farm near Taupo, to first generation farmer and mother with a passion for New Zealand flora and fauna, he went on to attend an agriculture course at Massey University. With an enthusiasm for exploring new places Dan decided to go on an OE but his passion for NZ bush remained. He returned to set up Blue Duck, his ethos; to farm sustainably and to enhance the land that makes up Blue Duck. Dan lives on the station with wife Sandy, son Blue and daughter Snow. Dan spent a lot of 2015 travelling as part of his Nuffield Scholorship but is now back at the station after finishing writing his report.
