A Farmer’s Story
Taragate was founded in 1989 and started as a family business manufacturing innovative electric fence products based on making real and practical improvements.
Founders Kerry & Barbara were both farmers running an intensive grassland farming business of about 500 dairy cows on an all-pasture system. For decades, they simply used what products were available at their time. Until they realized they could do better. They saw ways on how to improve farming and livestock management through manufacturing better and practical fencing products.
As their flagship product, the ‘Taragate Multi-Strand Electric Gate’, grew in popularity so did the company and very quickly the woolshed became too small to cope with the innovative product lines that were being developed. Taragate’s high quality, easy to use products have built a reputation of excellence. And thanks to strong relationships with other innovative companies, they are constantly introducing new products, and finding ways to improve the old.
