The Story of Torere Macadamias
Torere is a small bay in Eastern Bay of Plenty named after Torerenui-a-rua the beautiful Maori princess who swam ashore from the Tainui waka. Torere’s Iwi (tribe) is NgaiTai, it has one of the smallest tribal area’s in New Zealand. Torere in Maori means ‘desire’.
Vanessa Hayes was endowed by her tupuna (respected elder) great grand-uncle Wiremu Kerekere; as kaitiaki (caretaker) for this special location, now growing macadamias.
The location has historical significance with taonga (ancient tools) discovered on-site under the largest pohutukawa on main-land NZ.
