Traceable New Zealand Pork from the Kaimai Ranges
Where mountain spring water flows from volcanic soils
Our farm was founded back in 2016 by a group of local families with a simple, uniquely 'New Zealand' philosophy; combining the gifts of mother nature, with a relaxed environment, to create the freshest produce in the world.
Set on a block of rolling hill-country within Rawhiti Environmental Park, near the headwaters of the Patuwhao Stream, the site for our farm was identified for its ability to supply pigs with clean air and fresh water, the freshest in New Zealand.
Highest Welfare in New Zealand
Rawhiti Pork is certified New Zealand's highest welfare pork by QCONZ, as part of the national PigCare program.
Earning a high PigCare score means a farm meets the strictest standards of animal health and welfare, hygiene and cleanliness, has excellent facilities, knowledgable staff, sound farming systems, and is leading the national pork industry forward with new innovations and Intellectual Property.
Our Trotters Tread Lightly...
Ongoing projects ensure we farm in close accordance with Kaitiakitanga, the Maori concept of environmental stewardship. Our list of projects for 2020 includes:
Fresh Water Improvement
We are working with innovative engineering specialists to develop systems that remove Nitrogen and other elements from our wastewater. This neutralizes our impact on local rivers, so they may remain healthy for future generations.
Partnering with organic waste producers, we're able to take in their refuse streams to produce biogas. Plastic packaging from this process is collected and recycled, to ensure our pork is produced in the most sustainable way possible.
