A former member of Gloriavale on the West Coast says he was hit with a shovel handle and denied food for not working fast enough as a six-year-old.
The testimony was revealed as part of an employment court case examining whether those at the secretive community are volunteers or not.
Hosea Courage is one of three former Gloriavale members giving evidence as part of the case, which is challenging the findings of a Labour Inspectorate investigation.
