We believe that New Zealanders have the right to taste the very best beef produced on New Zealand pastures in an ethical, conscientious, and sustainable way.
We do not irrigate. All water is gravity fed around the farm from natural springs, we do not use pumps.
We have fenced off water ways and are riparian planting 2000-3000 natives in the fenced off areas ever year. This improves the water quality in our creeks and streams. Every year 100 - 200 trees are planted to mitigate soil erosion and add shade for our animals.
Ethical farming practices are at the forefront of Matangi which translates into the flavour and texture of top quality meat that has been dry aged before coming available to chefs and homes in New Zealand- Regnar Christensen, Executive Chef, Black Barn Bistro, Hawkes Bay
Packaging and Delivery
With packaging we have balanced environmental considerations with the need to protect and preserve our perishable product.
Recyclable Chilltainers as our boxes due to their thermal properties.
Nice Ice Packs, a water-based ice pack with recyclable plastic packaging, which can be disposed of down a sink.
Where possible other packaging materials are paper or wool based (for insulation).
We are happy to collect packaging from our clients in
Hawkes Bay for reuse.
NZ Post are our chosen courier for our overnight deliveries. Their person-to-person domestic deliveries are now carbon neutral.
