Huddle in and hear the tale


The Karapiro Prime Story

Our story begins where any epic adventure should; an insatiable curiosity and love for high quality food. A few characters in this tale have come and gone since many a moon ago; the year of two thousand sixteen.

On that fateful day, one brother visited another and to his surprise a parcel was delivered containing a selection of the finest beef and lamb cuts he had ever seen. “Where on this fine Earth did you order those from, brother?” he asked alarmingly. “Why, a friend of mine grows these fine animals. For other than friends and family, they tend to end up on plates in other countries”, he responded.

It was at that moment that the two devised a brilliant and generous plan. “Why can’t everyone get their hands on this stuff as well, brother?” the brilliant brother asked. “That’s an astounding point you raise, brother”, the other said. “I think we’re on to something here. Shall we pursue this?” one asked. “Yes, let’s.” the other agreed.

From that day forward, several impactful characters came in and out of the journey and today there are 3 brothers. The brothers 3 are now supplying some of New Zealand’s highest quality beef & lamb to their local village, Auckland. A man who builds and farms, an overly personable man who wires electrical structures and a man who is proficient at using a tool called, computer. With their different backgrounds, they have drawn on their skills and created what is now, Karāpiro Prime.

Karāpiro Prime grows its stock in Karāpiro and Whangamatā. As stated earlier in our story, the product is grown and nurtured in way that is fit for dining plates overseas. Stock that roams free on green pastures will always produce results suited to the overseas palate. No longer! Karāpiro Prime is reserving some of it’s best stock for the townsfolk of the land it comes from; New Zealand. All of the product comes packed tightly using a machine called a vacuum-packer. This apparently keeps air out to help the meat last much longer.
