Your retirement should be stress-free and full of adventure. Life in a Ryman village can open the door to endless opportunities.
Moving to a village doesn’t mean giving up your treasures or your sense of style. Whether you choose independent living or a serviced apartment, you can make space your own. You’ll benefit from a supportive community, as well as organised activities, outings and fabulous amenities to keep you entertained. If your needs change, our villages offer comprehensive care options.
Experience the Ryman difference—you’ll be surprised at how fun, easy and relaxed the lifestyle is.
New Zealand’s lush green pastures and temperate climate means our country produces some of the world’s best beef.
New Zealand is one of McDonald’s top ten beef-producing markets and it’s such a hit with the rest of the world that a significant percentage of NZ’s beef exports are to international McDonald’s markets.
We partner with many Kiwi farmers who produce our beef, including Whangara Farms which was the first beef farm outside of Europe to be invited to the McDonald’s Flagship Farmers programme.
ANZCO Foods, based in the small Taranaki town of Waitara, are responsible for making our 100% beef patties. About 90% of the staff at the Waitara plant are locals and they manage to produce around half a million patties each day.
Our quality beef cuts are minced and that’s it. No additives or fillers, just mince that is formed in patties, before they’re flash-frozen and sent to restaurants.
Environmental activists recently protested outside Nelson City Council, calling for the council to stop using the weedkiller, glyphosate, which they said harms bees. Glyphosate (contained in 90 products in New Zealand, including Roundup) is used by farmers and ecologists alike, but some scientists in New Zealand say we don't know enough its long term effects on the environment, and it should classified as hazardous. What do you think?
Happy Mother's Day Weekend!
