Mangatawa Farms

Mangatawa farm land consists of around 2 thirds (250 acres) of the total land area of some 750 acres land owned by the Mangatawa incorporation.  John Walker has been the Farm Manager here for near on 9years and has concentrated in the last 3-4 years in growing on calves. We carry up to 1200-1500 calves per year.  

As interest continues to grow in the Truman Lane industrial lands for long term leasing, this will affect the grazing lands that we have available on Mangatawa.  Part of our strategy in the 2017-2018 year is to acquire more lands, at first by leasing and then long term the of purchasing further lands.

George McLeod who was training as our Agriculture cadet left his employment with the incorporation in 2016 to support his partner in her business.  John is now assisted by Michael until we confirm another cadet.
