Ko wai mātou | About us

Tūaropaki Trust is an exciting Māori land organisation that was formed by 297 families amalgamating their land in the 1950s. Beginning in sheep and beef farming, the Trust was an early developer of geothermal power and now has a diverse portfolio, including a geothermal power station, hydrogen energy production, engineering and drilling services, a native plant nursery and a sustainability centre as well as dairy, beef and sheep farming. At the core of this organisation is a desire to drive prosperity for the owners and their families, so there is a strong focus on whānau, the future and sustainability.
