Sprout Entrepreneur Spotlight - Nature Matters Milking Company

A business model that allows small scale dairy farms to sell direct through trade and consumer channels has been named one of eight start-ups selected to take part in the inaugural Sprout agritech business accelerator programme.

Rangiora man Glen Herud set up Milking on the Moove in order to focus on exploring sustainable agricultural methods. In February of this year, he convinced the Ministry of Primary Industries to allow mobile milking and more specifically mobile milk processing.

Sprout Programme Manager James Bell-Booth says the selection committee was impressed by Herud’s passion, vision and drive.
