The Farm

Matangi Station is a 487ha farm in the iconic valley of the Tuki Tuki River in Hawke’s Bay. The station is at the very end of Matangi Road, a 15 minute drive from Havelock North. It’s a picturesque drive past the awe inspiring Te Mata Peak on your right and Craggy Range Winery on the left.

Matangi Station has 2.5km of river front and a combination of flats, rolling hill country and steep hilltops. Three iconic landscapes are within stones throw – Mt Erin, Te Mata Peak and across the other side of the river is Mount Kahuranaki, the highest of the triple peaks. From the highest point on the station you can look out to the snow-capped Mt Ruapehu, the fertile Heretaunga Plains where some of the world’s best apples and wine are produced and across to the turquoise water of the Bay and Pacific Ocean.

At Matangi, every detail of farm life is about creating an environment that we can all enjoy and call home. Traditional sheep and beef farming forged over 150 years has been re-designed with the influence of property owners Robert and Inge Haselsteiner and a fresh new age farming approach by farm manager Jamie Gaddum.

Robert and Inge spend several months enjoying Hawke’s Bay from Matangi, while Jamie and wife Nicki along with their children live permanently on the property.

Our grass is meticulously managed by shifting Angus and sheep constantly between the 35 paddocks. We only apply sustainable fertilizer on the land.

Matangi Station runs on solar power with surplus power sent back into the national grid. All powerlines are underground.

Our legacy is to leave Matangi Station and the surrounding area in a perfect state for future generations to enjoy. All permanent streams and waterways on our land are fenced off from cattle to ensure minimum impact on the Tuki Tuki River. Thousands of native trees and plants have already been planted in gullies to bring back birdlife and provide habitat for native species.
