A LAND REAWAKENING
Situated in a remote corner of New Zealand’s North Island where the world’s tallest bird – the moa – once roamed freely in a land of myth and legend, our story is about more than just honey. This is a story of forests rejuvenated, wetlands reborn and native wildlife returned.
Ohuatahi – or first place of plenty – was the name given to this land by the Maori. Here, past, present and future are precious and we combine this philosophy to our business with a profound respect for our natural surroundings.
Our aim is to preserve both the ecological and cultural heritage of the land, providing a sanctuary for people and wildlife. This means offering guardianship of the land rather than ownership, using the principles of sustainable management to guide our decisions.
We are a living example of positive transformation, rejuvenation and commitment to a sustainable business model that does not place profit ahead of the environment. We are breathing life back into the land, at the same time, running an ecologically conscious business and creating jobs.
