Taratahi Tautane Station

From Country Life, 9:30 pm on 18 April 2014

Iconic Hawkes Bay sheep and beef station Tautane was purchased by Ngati Kahungunu in May 2013. It's leased by the agricultural training organisation Taratahi and students get the opportunity to work on a farm which still has five thousand lambs to muster and big ranging hills and valleys to ride over.
