A melding of four stations: Puketawa, Tamatea, Tauwhareparae and Lowden Hills.
Tauwhareparae Farm LTD (TFL) is a melding of three stations – Puketawa, Tamatea and Tauwhareparae – but run as a single unit by general manager Keven Delegat.
The operation covers 11,500-ha, with around 6000 ha considered effective and the remainder in forestry blocks and Protected Managed Areas (PMA). TFL farms around 60,000 stock units, made up of a Romney sheep flock and Angus/Hereford cattle. Annually, the operation lambs 24,000 ewes and calves 3000 cows along with replacement stock. TFL currently runs a breeding/finishing system for the sheep and a breeding/store market system for the cattle. Fifteen full-time staff are employed on the farm, which is located 45-kilometers inland from Tolaga Bay and runs from 600-1100m in altitude. The terrain is rolling to step and the location makes it a summer safe property.
