Jacob Maxwell


Hi. My name is Jacob Maxwell. I grew up on our family dairy farm in Taneatua, near Whakatane. I went to Trident High School.

I grew up in a family of seven, being the youngest of three sisters and one brother. My hobbies include rugby, hockey, adventure racing and generally just being outside and keeping fit.

Ever since I could walk, I was out on the farm helping out, and farming is the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do. My goal is to own both a dairy and a sheep and beef farm. Once I complete my time at Waipaoa I would like to work here and then travel overseas to look at other farming practices, before settling down into a management role.
