Our Team

Peter Flintoft (Owner)

Peter has owned his own contracting business since 1990, when he returned from working the grain harvest in Australia and the USA. He takes pride in being able to provide a complete contracting service without compromising on quality. Growing up in the Amuri Basin gives Peter a large understanding of the area, the people, the land and its seasonal changes. Watching the land change from a dry un-irrigated basin to boarder dyke irrigation, to centre pivot irrigation, and the transformation from sheep and beef to the very present dairy farm now, has allowed Peter to continually change his service offerings and ensure Flintoft Contractors are at the top of their game.

Jonathan Hayward (2IC)

Jonathan has been with Flintoft Contractors for 7 years and oversees the silage crews over the busy summer season. Coming from the UK, Jonathan worked a couple of back to back seasons for Flintoft Contractors, fell in love with NZ and applied for NZ Residency. The rest they say, is history.

Flintoft Contractors currently employs approximately 15 further staff members, all of whom are committed to providing farmers with the best contracting service possible.
