How will diversification keep New Zealand at the forefront of global primary production and what could it mean for you as an investor?
While new business models, smarter practices and the honing of production systems will create challenges, they will also present exciting opportunities as primary producers look increasingly to outside capital investment.

“An outstanding day and great to meet some of your investors and potential investors. The speakers were excellent, and Grant was a natural MC”. A huge thank you for inviting Farmlands to be part of it”.

“What a great day! I already know 5 people who have told me they want to go next year!”
“I’d like to thank all MyFarm staff for arranging the most interesting and successful Conference at Rotorua. I found the speakers were most interesting and the subjects varied. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed the field trip on Friday. I know now what the El Dorado orchard looks like and have high hopes for its future”.
