Pāmu News

Pāmu Farms of New Zealand is the brand name for Landcorp Farming Limited. Pāmu stands for best practice in sustainable and safe farming, and for the unique provenance of New Zealand foods, nutrition products and fibre on global markets.

We chose the Māori word ‘Pāmu’ not just for its literal meaning ‘to farm’ but also to reflect the Māori concept of guardianship of the environment (kaitiakitanga).

Pāmu strives to be a leader in New Zealand agriculture, carefully creating natural products of high quality.
