About Us

Boman is the man behind the success of Zaberri Farms. Boman started in the industry working at another farm when he was only 15. He had an empowering vision to one day own his own farm. He was determined to get going early, so set out to find a land owner that would lease to him.

Boman spent many months looking for the right property, often being turned down as being too young. He persevered until he found the ideal piece of land where the landowner fully supported his vision and gave him his first break. Boman will never forget this person and that day, “Zaberri farms had begun”. As the years progressed and the business grew Boman purchased his own farm land.

Looking back Boman says “Dreams Have No Limits” as long as you have the passion to go after your dream and not give up. He is a firm believer that every generation has the opportunity to remake the world into something greater. Boman has proudly grown his Zaberri business year after year to now being one of the larger suppliers of Strawberries in New Zealand and exporting to international markets.

Boman is constantly thinking of new ways to give us even better products to savour. Sustainability and looking after his expansive team is always at the forefront of his mind. He always remembers the support of his parents, and the values they taught him. These values will continue to be passed on to so many that are now working with him. We get to enjoy delicious Zaberri Strawberries because Boman is dedicated to his vision, driven by his passion, and operates with a caring approach to the local community.
