Making a difference to NZ

At Pāmu, we’ve been evolving our knowledge and guardianship of nature for over 135 years.

Pāmu strives for farming excellence. We are focused on running a profitable and efficient business, with an emphasis on innovating to be a sustainable, safe and responsible employer. 

We seek to ensure our farming activities contribute positively to ecosystems and communities. Applying core farming principles of: soil health and pasture; animal health and welfare; nutrition; and best practice management is how we are lifting productivity, generating gains in farm output and cost efficiency.

Health, Wellbeing and Safety

Safety will always be at the heart of the way we operate.

Nothing is more important than making sure everyone on our team gets home safely every night. The wellbeing of our people is our clear priority, and we have programmes and systems in place to make sure safe behaviour is embedded in everything we do. We continue to lead the agricultural sector with our health and safety standards.

Environment

We take our role as guardians of the land seriously and are leading the way in protecting and enhancing our environment for future generations.

The lands and waterways of New Zealand are precious, and we are committed to protecting them. We believe that environmentally sound farming practices create the highest quality natural products. Our whole operation is founded on this belief, with strategies to ensure environmental considerations are an integral part of all steps in the Pāmu journey – from pasture to plate.

Protecting the land

Pāmu has protected more than 10,000 hectares of high-value conservation land under the Queen Elizabeth II National Trust. The areas include bush, wetlands, streams and ponds. We’re continuing to add more covenants to protect high-value conservation land across our farms.
