Te Atarangi is situated on the Pouto Peninsula, 25 minutes South West of Dargaville. It backs on to the west coast (300 metres from high tide and good fishing spots) and is just 4 km by road from the Kaipara Harbour to the east.


We now have 330+ paddocks on the freehold block. There is a further 40 paddocks fenced with pigtails and poly wire. Most fencing now undertaken is 2 wire electric. We now have 7 sets of yards.


Our Angus Stud began in 1988 with the purchase of 5 cows from Matauri. We now farm 300 Angus cows along side 180 cross-bred cows. We aim for a maternal animal with reasonable growth and excellent ease of calving.


We have mated yearlings since 1982. All stud cows are calved behind a hot wire with calves from the Angus tagged and weighed at birth.
