The Boys' Training Farm at Weraroa in Levin was a government institution for children opened in 1905. It housed boys with behavioural problems – identified as 'delinquents' – although neglected and orphaned boys also ended up there. Occupational training was an important element of the institution's regime. These boys are threshing hay in 1912.
