Watch Our Videos
We've been out and about making some videos to help you get a better feel for the Norwood experience.
You will get an overview of what makes our dealerships tick, and hear from our clients and about why they keep coming back.
A worthwhile investment
You and your family are worth investing in just as much as your land and your business are.
Robyn and Kevin Barrett chat to us about how they handle the ups and downs of farming.
“It’s really easy in farming just to keep grinding away and wearing yourself down. It’s really important that you don’t work so hard trying to make a living that you forget to live.”
Strength in Diversity
We’re proud to share the second video in our Strength in Diversity series - a campaign created to celebrate diversity in Aotearoa’s farming community. Proud Taranaki Farmers Robyn Barrett and Susan Crowley talk to us about why they love being a part of the agricultural industry.
From farm paddock to rugby field
Scott, Jordie, Kane and Blake Barrett chat to us about all things farming and rugby.
Kevin Barrett shares his thoughts on the performance of the Vredo 2.9 Agri Air overseeder
The Agri Air is perfect for smaller pastures with slopes or undulating terrain. Extremely stable and manoeuvrable, it features a pneumatic hopper which channels the seed directly to the cam wheel. Changing seed types and resetting the reliable calibration is done in the blink of an eye.
Kubota excavator review with Kevin Barrett
The Barretts have been working hard on a new house build on their Taranaki dairy farm, using a Kubota KX080-3S excavator to help get the job done.
"It's been great. Small enough to manoeuvre around the tight spots, but big enough to tackle the big jobs."
The Vaderstad Opus is a heavy duty tine cultivator designed to cultivate and mix soil down to a depth of 400mm. Vaderstad’s unique shin design ensures soil is thrown forward, not upward resulting in continued working of the soil to maximise the results of each pass. With a range of tine points and roller options the Opus can be tailored to suit any task. Opus is available in working widths from 4-7 metres.
Vaderstad NZ Aggressive
Vaderstad’s impressive tine harrow, the NZ Aggressive, was specifically designed for the New Zealand market and delivers unmatched high-speed seedbed preparation. With tine spacing of just 7.5cm spread across 5 rows and combined with front and rear levelling boards, the NZ Aggressive is available in sizes from 5 to 14 metres. An optional rear drawbar allows for following rollers such as the Vaderstad Rexius RS820 to complete the job where additional reconsolidation is required.

Q&A with Scott and Jordie Barrett
During our last visit to the Naki to catch up with Norwood ambassadors, the Barrett family, we took some time to get to know Scott and Jordie a wee bit better.
