At the end of Matangi Road, is a boutique beef station, nestled on the foothills of two of Hawke’s Bay’s most iconic landscapes Mt Erin and Te Mata Peak.
Matangi Station, a 487ha farm of flat paddocks, rolling hill country and steep hilltops is where the history of traditional farming forged over 150 years meets European precision in property owners Robert and Inge Haselsteiner and new age farming innovations of Hawke’s Bay born farm manager Jamie Gaddum.
At Matangi’s highest point you’re drawn into the 360o scenic vistas down to the Heretaunga Plains, across to Mt Ruapehu and the Kaweka and Ruahine Ranges, before sweeping around to the Pacific Ocean and up here you can feel a constant breeze and sometimes strong winds. Matangi is the Mâori expression for these elements.
From here Matangi Angus Beef is expertly crafted with distinction by farm manager Jamie Gaddum. Jamie and his wife Nicki see themselves as custodians of the land and part of a modern farming partnership that blends the best of traditional farming practices, a relentless focus on animal health and wellbeing with scientifically based innovations.
Robert and Jamie have selected the best in genetics that enable Angus cattle to grow and thrive on the green-grassed rolling hills of Matangi Station. Eating quality – not speed of growth is their breeding focus. Place of origin is simple – Matangi Station, Havelock North, Hawke’s Bay.
Every detail of producing the most succulent full-bodied beef available is crafted by Jamie and his dedicated team. Cattle remain together in small herds in familiar surroundings, strolling to well-prepared paddocks to feed on grass with a backdrop of the Tuki Tuki River, fresh water springs and the scent of sea salt from the Pacific Ocean.
At Matangi our focus is on responsible farming practices, looking after a farm environment for generations to come and caring for our animals.
The outcome is flavoursome, aged, beautifully marbled beef that defines a new era of prime aged Angus Beef.
Matangi has a unique partnership with a local butcher, which provides a short supply chain from farm to plate of New Zealand’s finest dining establishments and selected homes.
Our promise is to deliver full-flavoured Angus beef that’s crafted with distinction and dry aged to perfection. For you to enjoy.
