A growing and successful family business


Piquet Hill Stud was started by Peter Jackson in 1966. Sons, Tom and William Jackson joined the breeding operation in 2003 and in 2013 formed a partnership to complete the purchase of the farming business. William later purchased the stud and bull lease business along with 1600ha in its entirety in late 2018, which makes up Piquet Hill Farms today.

Piquet Hill Farms comprises approximately 1600 hectares, the majority of which is tough hill country. It has always been operated under an easy-care policy with no shepherding to ensure sound and hardy breeding.

The major emphasis for the Stud has always been on fertility, growth rate, wool weight and facial eczema tolerance.

Expanding on the success of their rams, Piquet Hill Farms also offer quality service bulls to the dairy industry and have an annual Bull Sale in September each year.
