Currently under the guardianship of Harriet and Lloyd Chapman, the Lavericks Bay farm is situated on the eastern tip of Banks Peninsula, Canterbury. The bay was first settled by Harriet’s ancestors in 1858, and Harriet and Lloyd’s children are the seventh generation to live in Lavericks Bay.

Lavericks Bay's wool can be found in carpet ranges produced by Ulster Carpets of Northern Ireland. The clean white Laneve wool produced in the Banks Peninsula is perfect for Ulster's "Open Spaces" carpet ranges that offer clean pastel shades.

Currently the farm is 1000 hectares running 3000 ewes and 150 cows and finishing all their young stock.



Lavericks Bay is part of the BP Farms group of farms who are all proud members of the Wools of New Zealand programme.

Nurtured by a unique combination of unyielding weather, fertile soil and careful farming practices, Banks Peninsula wool is remarkably strong, white and bright.

Our focus is to strengthen our farming community and uphold the sustainable farming practices that will ensure our Peninsula is kept beautiful and productive for generations to come.

Meet the Chapman family of Lavericks Bay in the beautiful Banks Peninsula.  The Chapman family have been farming Lavericks Bay for seven generations. Lloyd Chapman talks about his pride in growing wool for Ulster Carpets and John lewis & Partners.
