Crafting the finest grass-fed Angus Beef in NZ... Every step of the way


We have full control over the curation of our product.

Our boutique Beef herd is bred specially for premium eating quality and we take special care at every step of the process, with no compromises along the way.


We only produce beef which has been bred and grown on our two properties. We select the breeding of our animals to produce optimum eating quality in our beef. We aim for high intramuscular fat (marbling), and ultimately a tender product full of flavour.


Our 100% grass fed Angus cattle are grown on our two properties for 24-32 months. They spend their life in a low-stress environment where they are free to roam with their same mates for the duration of their life.


Matangi Angus Beef is hung on the bone for three weeks allowing flavour and tenderness to develop. Our in-house butchery team then carefully prepares the cuts to our clients' specifications, creating a dining experience like no other!

What our loyal clients have to say...

Consistent texture, what is delivered is always the same.

The relaxed and calm way they are reared from birth means the muscles of the meat have a consistent texture and what is delivered is always the same.

The quality of their meat is unrivaled, couldn't be happier.

"Firstly - The quality of their meat is unrivaled, couldn't be happier. I've just received my second order for a full stock up of our house.

Second - The service from Nicky just elevates the business. So good to deal with, nothings a problem, super helpful and friendly.

Third - The courier system they use is so effective and reliable, keeps you updated and delivers on time.

Tomahawk steaks were out of this world.

Tomahawk steaks were out of this world. 80 days aged, Massive in size and Flavour. Packaging was very fancy. Would highly recommend and would definitely purchase again. Nicky was amazing to talk to.

Best scotch fillets I have purchased in NZ.

Best scotch fillets I have purchased in NZ. I have tried several of the products Matangi offers and every single product tastes better than others purchased through supermarkets as well as respected butcher outlets. Personally, I prefer to buy direct from food producers as opposed to supermarkets. Nicky and the Matangi team are super easy to deal with, I highly recommend their products and service.

Well done to all the team, your meat is something special.

Best beef you will ever taste. I have bought several cuts of meat from Matangi Angus Beef and they were all exceptional. We are lucky to have such high quality meat producers in New Zealand. Well done to all the team, your meat is something special.

"Absolutely unbelieeeeeeeevable"

"That close to 100 day aged t bone was absolutely unbelieeeeeeeevable. I think it was the best steak I have ever eaten. The cap of fat on it was like biting into heaven! Safe to say ill be getting some more soon."

"Awesome Brisket"

"I finally cooked that awesome brisket. It turned out beautifully - way better than the previous two or three I’ve done [from other suppliers]. Thanks so much - I’ll definitely be getting more from you guys in the future!"

Ciaran, Hawke Bay, 2022
"Seriously Impressed"

"Just a note to say I was seriously impressed with the quality of the beef and of your processes, marketing and packaging! Glad to find someone who waits until cattle are at a decent age before slaughter - that is very hard to find and truly makes all the difference!"

Kurt, Invercargill, 2021
"The first time we have been able to find certain cuts in NZ"

"I'd like to really congratulate you on your amazing beef. We are a French family who has lived in New Zealand for the past 4 years. It is the first time that we have found such quality in beef...and the first time we have been able to find certain cuts, such as the Bavette, which are not available elsewhere. We look forward to making monthly orders next season".

Nicolas, Waiheke Island, 2021
"Each time we’ve ordered it’s been seamless "

"Not only does this company deliver flavourful, high-quality meat from a family-owned farm, the company prioritizes sustainability in its business practices, as well as animal wellbeing with humane business practices and overall food quality and safety. Each time we’ve ordered it’s been seamless with easy and quick ordering and delivery. The team Nicky, and others have been helpful and even as a small volume customer they don’t value or treat us any less than their larger clients." 

Alan, Auckland 2021

The Matangi Release Program

Pre-order your favourite cuts today

Matangi Beef is not available all year round because nature does not work that way. Our calves are born in August and February and we believe they should have sufficient time to fully develop and reach their optimal condition and weight.

We grow our cattle until they are 24 to 32 months old. Only then are they well marbled and the taste is perfect. That is the reason the annual Matangi Release Program always starts in the first week of October - we call it Matangi Week. We then supply customers every week until July.

You can find all our delivery dates listed in our online shop. We encourage you to select your cuts and order as soon as possible to secure your supply.

where it all started

From the backdrop of the Tuki Tuki River

Matangi is a place of mystic beauty – craggy mountain ranges, gentle rolling hills, fertile river flats, fresh spring water, native bush and 2.5 kilometres of river frontage. Our land is a paradise for our animals and for us. Matangi is the Maori word for breeze – just what we need during long hot Hawke’s Bay summers.
