About Us & Aviation History
Skyfarmers Aviation was formed in 1982 between pilot Col. Bolgar and farmer Don Hart to provide an aerial topdressing and spraying in the Canterbury Region. It was now 1987 and Don Hart became the sole owner of Skyfarmers. In 2007, Duncan Hart bought the business off his father Don and continues to run it today. Skyfarmers is based on Springfield Estate in mid-Canterbury and services the Canterbury wide region and can go further afield as required.
We cover a diverse range of terrain and farm types, one day we can be spraying specialist vegetable crops on the plains and the next flying fertiliser on in the High Country.
