At twenty-nine years of age he became proprietor of “Mototara,” near Waipukurau, and, later on, in conjunction with Mr. Ashton St. Hill, acquired a large station on the coast, of which he was manager for about nine years. In the year 1891 he took up “Tangarewa,” to the improvement of which he devoted the remaining years of his life. Mr. Price was a member of the Ashley-Clinton Road Board and other public bodies.
