Mangatawa Farms

Mangatawa farm land  John Walker has been the Farm Manager here since 2008 and has concentrated in the last few years on growing calves. We carry up to 1200-1500 calves per year.  

As interest continued to grow the Truman Lane industrial lands for long term leasing, this affected the grazing lands that we had available on Mangatawa.  Part of our strategy in the 2017-2018 year was to acquire more lands, at first by leasing and then long term the of purchasing further lands.  We have taken a lease on a 34-acre block over in Welcome Bay to ensure our stock are getting enough feed,One 35 Ha lease of Hone Newman’s at Waitao Road and Rehua Smallman block a further 9 Ha. Our latest sales prices are reflecting the good grass on the farm as stock fatten up.
