It's taking longer than I'd expected, partly because some of the research has meant a lot of digging in various archives, not to mention several trips to Wellington to visit those archives!

Totara Estate, a short distance south of Oamaru, was in the 19th century a grand property of 15,000 acres. They ran sheep and cattle, and grew large quantities of grain. Totara Estate even had its own flour mill, which thanks to a team of volunteers is still in running order. The estate has a special place in New Zealand history as the birthplace of the country’s frozen meat industry in 1882.
