Who We Are?
Ken G Moratti Ltd has been in the Agricultural Contracting business for over 50 years and the name Moratti has become synonymous with Hay & Silage making, maize, cultivation and cropping in the Inglewood Community and wider Taranaki district.
Its origins began in 1963 when Ken Moratti, who was farming, had a chance to use a hedge trimmer and got so good at it that the neighbours began asking him to trim their hedges. So, equipped with Massey Ferguson 135 and 165 tractors, a drill and a hedge cutter he started his business.
A job re-grassing the Kapuni to Pio Pio gas line set the business up and rapid growth ensued over the following years. Now Ken G Moratti Ltd boasts a large, up to date fleet of machinery with the latest technology and is one of the largest Agricultural Contracting businesses in Taranaki. They offer a comprehensive range of services including hay and silage baling, pit and fine chop silage, maize silage, fodder beet, cultivation, cropping, grassing, hedge cutting, effluent pond cleaning and muck spreading, fertiliser spraying, metal carting and trenching.
Ken G Moratti Ltd is still family owned, with managing director Billy Moratti running the business. His origins were in dairy farming until he came to ‘help out’ his father in the Agricultural Contracting business in 1985 and has been there ever since. Family and community are vitally important to the Moratti contracting team, with many family members having worked for the company and is evident in the company’s ongoing support of many local charities, schools, sports groups and affiliations.
The staff at Ken G Moratti Ltd are locals and are highly experienced and competent operators ‘Prompt, efficient and reliable service’ is their focus, with quality workmanship and the ability to build long lasting relationships with their clients. With over 50 years of experience in the Agricultural Contracting industry, Ken G Moratti Ltd offers their clients expert advice for all of their on-farm requirements.
