Environmental issues facing Omania are numerous, which is no different to farming in many parts of NZ, and indeed the world. Being located nearly on the shores of Lake Rotorua, we are very aware of the environmental issues with regard to the lake. Through the decades we have both had a family culture of land conservation hence the many steps taken on Omania Farm to reduce nutrient runoff and protect soils and the natural environment. Every winter we endeavor to plant trees both for ascetic reasons and protection for the stock.
