The Ngatai family are farming for the future

Blending traditional practice with modern technology to farm sustainably.

The Ngatai whanau blends the traditional practice based on four generations of knowledge with modern technology, to farm sustainably and maintain the uniqueness of Matakana Island for years to come.
