With Māori owning in the vicinity of 227,289ha of land in pastoral agricultural or horticultural production, Māori agribusiness is a significant activity, particularly in the North Island.
With an association stretching back over 30 years to John’s original practice in Rotorua, Perrin Ag continues to have a passion for and active involvement with Māori agribusiness ventures at a number of levels. As a firm we have embraced Te Ao Māori as another lens through which to understand the way we do things and how we can create better outcomes for ourselves and our clients.
Perrin Ag currently provides 23 Māori-owned farms with operational oversight (2.5mil kg MS, c. 50,000 SU) across the motu and has 50+ active Māori client relationships, including whanau, hapu, iwi, collective and government level entities. Māori agribusiness comprises 40% of the firm’s revenue, across the value-chain, and the firm has been involved with two Ahuwhenua wins (Kapenga M Trust 2003 & 2012) and one finals placing (Kokako Trust 2006).
