Our Story

Our story

For generations, our family has dedicated our lives to farming. We’ve gained a wealth of knowledge about the area’s hunting and are excited to share it with you. Leaving a legacy for the future is important to us, and we hold our conservation values close to our hearts. Pest control has been an integral part of our operations for over 80 years.

Each season brings something new and unique to our farm, and we cherish the diversity it offers. We’re committed to preserving the spectacular natural landscapes on our land by managing introduced animals that can harm biodiversity. We also take steps to control wilding pines that can be detrimental to the environment.

We understand that hunting experiences should be unforgettable. That’s why we provide an experience that will leave a lasting impression on you. Our guides are highly trained and skilled in providing an exceptional hunting experience. As we own the property, we can arrange tours at short notice.

We are proud to be a Living Wage Employer

This means the world to us. We are very proud to be the Mackenzie Region’s first accredited tourism operator to pay a living wage.

This is one of many steps we have taken to enable our team to live with dignity and be able to participate as active citizens in society.

We support the Tiaki Promise​

In New Zealand we welcome manuhiri (guests) in the spirit of manaakitanga (respect, kindness and hospitality). Hear our call. Feel welcome.

We also present our visitors with a wero (challenge). This wero is a challenge and commitment to care for New Zealand. This wero is the Tiaki promise.

We encourage all visitors to pick up this wero. To follow the Tiaki Promise. To act as a guardian, protecting and preserving our home.
