Okawa is a summer dry 1700 hectare Sheep and Beef farm that has been in our family since 1852. We are the fifth generation farming this land. Okawa comprises three properties (Okawa, Ohiwia and Ngamahanga) and is run as one.

In our sheep operation we currently mate 3000 ewes and 1000 hoggets that start lambing in June, and produce 5000 lambs. We also winter trade lambs.

Alongside our sheep operation we have 400 south devon and angus cows. We fatten their progeny. We also fatten 2 yr old steers and bulls, and graze dairy cows.

We specialise in growing red clover crops and mixed swards of chicory and clover. Our soils are silt loam with limestone rock and all paddocks have reticulated water.

We thoroughly enjoy our farming operation and pride ourselves on delivering to you top quality lamb.
