New Zealand's Ethical, Traceable Pristine Pork
The Cleanest Place on Earth
With clean mountain air, native forests and mountain spring water, the Rawhiti Pork farm in the Kaimai Ranges is the best place in the world to grow pigs.
All 'Rawhiti pigs' spend their lives at our single-origin farm, away from other livestock, surrounded by the Kaimai Natural Forest Park.
Animal welfare and health are paramount to us. You won't find any farrowing crates here, and independent accreditation ensures we meet the very highest industry standards.
Healthy produce means healthy people. As a 'High-Health' farm, there are exceptionally low rates of disease among our herd.
Our Current Projects
Working closely with NIWA, we are developing a biogas plant to create electricity from pig manure. The plan is for the greenhouse gasses to be turned into electricity to power the farm.
Through partnerships with local schools, sports teams and community teams we hope to be a valuable member of the local community. We have proudly donated to Tatuanui School, Springdale School, and are delighted to have come on-board with NZ charity The Waterboy to helping get kids into sport. We are also a big backer of our girls in Te Arohas 'Twenty 20 Netball' team.
We are working with innovative engineering specialists to develop ways of removing Nitrogen and other elements from our wastewater. This will ensure our waterways remain pristine forever - a win for all!
Municipal waste reduction
By partnering with large food-producing companies, we are able to consume their excess produce as stock feed. This food/liquid waste would otherwise go to land-fill or be spread onto paddocks where it gets into the waterways and soaks up oxygen!
By refusing to use inhumane Farrowing Crates or pump our herd full of anti-biotics; and by doing renovations to our livestock barns, using only the latest Freedom Farrowing pens, and with some of the lowest disease rates in the country, we are leading New Zealands pork industry out of the dark ages towards more humane animal welfare practices.
Working closely with Regional and District Councils, we are ensuring we remain compliant and are always in the loop about what the community expects of us.
