Mossburn is a small town in the northern Southland Region of New Zealand, south of Queenstown and east of Te Anau. The town is located in a very scenic area, with the mountains of Fiordland creating a beautiful backdrop. The town’s main industry is agriculture, with many cattle, deer, and sheep farms nearby. Due to the amount of deer farming, Mossburn claims to be the deer capital of New Zealand. Mossburn’s greatest burst of economic activity came as a result of the construction of the Manapouri Power Station. The wind farm at White Hill was constructed with 29 turbines each of 2.0 MW. In total, it can produce enough electricity to power 30,000 homes when at full capacity. The dairy farm is beautifully situated with rolling hills and green pastures. The dairy farmers have an amazing view from their homes, and during the winter months and beginning of spring the Fiordland mountains are covered in snow. I always find it very peaceful with natures sounds and the whoosh of the wind turbines in the background when they are running. Mossburn Southland New Zealand
