"Ko Wharepuhunga te Maunga" ~ "To be the guardians of the land and assets"

Owners with progressive foresight sought the amalgamation of numerous smaller land titles in 1951; this allowed land development to commence on the 4200 acre block under the control of the Maori Affairs Department.


The current Trust assumed control of the land in 1982 and has since grown, intensified and diversified to become a successful mixed farming business encompassing dairying, sheep and cattle fattening and cropping.


The goals of the farming business are based on achieving the best outcomes, for a growing shareholding, on a sustainable long term basis. Along with annual dividend distributions the Trust has a strong focus on education funding for its whanau.
