The Orbell's started farming deer in the early 1980's. All the original deer were live captured wild deer off the property. The deer farm originally started as 15 Ha but grew quickly to 400 Ha over the next 10 years, with some purchased deer introduced by this stage.
In 2000 we had 1000 Hinds and 300 velveter's. Since then we have fenced in a further 900 Ha and currently farm 2000 Hinds and 400 velveter's as well as some trophy hunting on the property.
In the last 5 years have introduced new genetics for both venison and trophy animals.
Deer are a perfect fit for our environment and are both a pleasure and challenge to work with.
