Rural images from around our district

Te Awamutu lies in the heart of the Waikato region, an area known for its lush and fertile pastures. Our town is very much a farming community. Dairy farming dominates the rural scene but there is also plenty of sheep farming and other forms of agriculture.

You can see photos of our rural lifestyle at TATV.
