FarmSmarter NZ is a regulatory and compliance service developed by farmers for farmers, with the backing of the Federated Farmers.

We aim to provide a one-stop shop where you can buy a range of products and services to comply with regulatory requirements from councils, government or industry.

Initially FarmSmarter NZ will provide services for:
  • Health & Safety
  • Environmental/ RMA – nutrient budgets, farm plans, water permits, burning permits and other consents
  • Support for farmer groups and collectives.

Over the next 12 months look out for modules for:
  • Pest management and biosecurity
  • Soil erosion
  • Biodiversity
  • Animal welfare
  • Supplier accreditation
  • Farm succession and farm business plans
  • Farm information and data reporting – in aggregate form to protect your privacy.

We offer our programmes at two levels:
  • FarmSmarter Compliance – the tools all farmers need to help comply with councils and government rules.
  • FarmSmarter Leader – for those aiming to be at the leading edge of environmental and ethical farming practices.
You buy the products and services you need at the level that works for you!
