Lifetime Achievement

Generations 8, 9 and 10 of the Buchanan family are working together to preserve our family estate and prepare it for future generations to enjoy. Sir Andrew and Lady Buchanan took over in 1967 (Gen 8), starting the farming and tourism businesses and their son and daughter-in-law George and Kat arrived in 2006 (Gen 9), starting their hospitality stream with the first of their 4 children (Gen 10) who are helping grow the forestry and cricket bat willow plantations. Our staff are extended family – it particular Ken and Lynda Pepper who will be retiring in 2018 after nearly 80 years service between them. They will continue to live in their house on the estate and work part-time on estate pet projects after retirement.
