Our Legal Status

We are a statutory Trust and a registered charity, based in Greytown, Wairarapa, New Zealand.

The purposes of the Trust are set out in our very own piece of Government legislation, the Greytown District Trust Lands Act 1979 (as amended) which, along with its predecessors dating back to 1871, has governed and influenced everything we do (link to NZ legislation).

As a registered charity, because all the profits we make are put to charitable use, we benefit from not having to pay income tax on our earnings.
