ORIGIN STORY

Palliser Ridge in New Zealand’s North Island is part of the Wools of New Zealand Ltd integrity programme and were one of the very first New Zealand farms to be accredited under the Responsible Wool Standard for Marks and Spencer UK. 

Kurt Portas runs the 1320-hectare [1150-hectare] coastal property with his wife Lisa, and as a young Kiwi family with two boys, Axel (8 years old) and Beauden (5 years old), they’re committed to sustainably working with nature and their 10,000 sheep. 

South Wairarapa sheep and beef farm Palliser Ridge has been embedded with sustainability and social stewardship since the beginning. The farm sells 10 tonnes of lambswool and 20 tonnes of ewes’ wool each year, in addition to marketing honey, lambswool and hand-knitted clothing products used to demonstrate the wonders of wool.

The off-grid accommodation and on-farm tour enterprises also add value to the business and highlight their sustainable management practices.

Stock water sourced from a bore on the Turanganui Plains is reticulated across the entire property and Kurt has begun a planting programme on retiring old dams and establishing native vegetation.
