Like all Maori Land Trusts Kokako has a precious history that connects the people to the land. Guiding the Trust is an overall respect for the tikanga, kawa and whenua of the Kokako owners and their descendants within the context of Matauranga Maori.
Long recognised for its stability, proactive development and excellence in all it does the Trusts vision is:
Land Blocks - Ngā Wāhi Whenua o Kokako
Kokako Trust owns and operates five land blocks, located in the iwi rohe Te Kaokaoroa o Pātetere Raukawa, referred to as Lichfield, South Waikato. The farms consist of three Dairy units, a Dry stock farm, a Hemp operation established in 2019. A leased support block is located at Ngātira.
Sustainable Thinking Whakaaro Rangatira
The Trust seeks to ensure its farming operations are carried out in the most long term sustainable manner at the same time connecting with affiliated land blocks and providing significant economic growth opportunities for the owners while maximising owner’s engagement and participation on our journey.
