Otiwhiti Station
By The Duncan family

Contains numerous photos throughout.

The story of a hill country station and pioneering polio hospital

The Duncan family's legacy of `giving back' was strengthened by its patriarch, Sir Thomas Duncan, known as T.A. An astute, forward-thinking and successful farmer he was, along with his wife Jeannie, deeply connected to the local community. When the polio epidemic of last century landed disastrously close to home, they set aside Otiwhiti Station as a charitable trust to fund the Duncan Hospital, which pioneered treatment for polio sufferers. Ever since, the Trust and the farm have worked side by side, throughout the changing fortunes of farming.

Otiwhiti Station chronicles the personalities, the yarns and the legends of station and hospital life, and is beautifully illustrated with photography by Peter McDermott and engaging historical and family photographs.

It is both the story of an iconic North Island hill-country station and of a remarkable family, whose philanthropy and resolve epitomise the Kiwi spirit.
