Who we are

The Dalrymple family and some of the key people of Waitatapia

Waitatapia Farming has been owned and operated by the Dalrymple family for over a 100 years. 

Current owners and operators are brothers Hew & Roger Dalymple.  Hew manages the cropping & timber operations with Roger managing the livestock. The brothers are the fifth generation of Dalrymple’s farming at Waitatapia. Waitatapia is Maori for “plenty of water” & is believed to be named as such due to the frequent flooding of the Rangitikei River before the building of stop banks in the area.
