Patea Butchery is located on the main road of coastal town, Pātea in South Taranaki and is owned by Paul Vaipuna and Ingrid Frengley-Vaipuna.  

Paul and Ingrid have lived in Patea since 2009 at the edge of town on a 7 acre block with beautiful old trees and gardens, an orchard, a piggery and a couple of paddocks with sheep and beefies. Their animals are content and  the  organic gardens flourish. They feel  privileged to live in this amazing place and eat meat, eggs and veggies from their property. They believe kai should be delicious and nutritious and if we are going to eat meat, we should do so with consideration and respect - for the animal, the planet and ourselves. This philosophy underpins all business practice at Patea Butchery.


Our logo was designed by whanau including Luther Ashford of Tuapapa Studio. It consists of the business name, a flying pig and an ancient Polynesian pattern called Tokelau Feletoa which was first brought to the Pacific by the Lapita people over 3000 years ago. The pattern reflects the complex migration history of those who have made their way to Aotearoa. The pig, an early settler in Aotearoa, has wings as all dreamers do.... 

As well as daily meat requirements, Patea Butchery specialises in house made Flying Pig bacon for home kitchen and local eateries, and provides home kill processing services.


The butchery operates from an historic building built as a designated butchery in 1898. As it has for the last 125 years, it provides quality products and service for surrounding communities as well as deliveries nation-wide.
