A Family Business

For over 25 years and 2 generations the Scott family has been serving the Wairarapa Valley. Whatever you need, Scott’s Ag will do a quality job.

Serving the Wairarapa Community For Over 25 years

Over 25 years ago our father Bernard started his hay carting business in Parkvale, Carterton.  After enjoying many years building a loyal customer base, ownership passed to us, his sons Rhys and Jason. We have continued to grow the business and now employ more than 10 locals, run over 20 vehicles and offer a huge range of agricultural contracting services. In 2015 we bought Smith’s Spreading and adopted the new technology, TracMap, which makes farm Health and Safety easy and allows our customers greater oversight of the work we do for them.

We have a great team behind us and the support of the whole Scott family who are an integral part of keeping our growing operation on track. We also welcome a team of workers every year for our Summer season, if you’re interested in applying for one of these seasonal positions get in touch.

We’re committed to providing top quality service Wairarapa wide for everyone from the smalled lifestyler to the largest stations.
