Leave a legacy for future generations
Help us continue to create better outcomes for sustainable & profitable farming
Ensuring profitable farms
Farmers understand the need for policy, spending restraint and the need to rebalance the economy towards the private sector. We recognise that genuine wealth can only be created in the private sector but wealth creation builds tax revenue. Ensuring profitable farms is about as appropriate as opposing over regulation.
Water is the leading edge for agriculture's environmental and economic footprint. We outline sensible policies for its ownership, management, allocation and quality. Water storage underpins economic growth by extending both the growing season and availability of land. Not to mention the freedom to use land, which makes economic sense.
Researching a better way
Research is key to increasing both on-farm productivity and the value and range of the products we produce. Research is also fundamental to reducing our environmental footprint by enabling us to produce more from less.
Leveraging off safer food and enhanced biosecurity
New Zealand's reputation is not based on the ETS, NAIT or ‘clean-green', but is based on proven systems of food assurance and integrity built into our entire production system. Another vital aspect to our economy is biosecurity, which is a key market differentiator but one that has been underplayed.
Making the most of our human and technological capital
Agriculture has always been knowledge-led and there are opportunities to take this knowledge to the world in such a way that creates a services counterpart to the on-farm work of farmers. We are all one people and our 2011 manifesto is our first step in a whole society approach. One that defines New Zealanders by what they do, as opposed to the narrow definitions of ‘rural' and ‘urban'.
How to leave a legacy for future generations
To make a bequest to Federated Farmers it is important to have a will ensuring your wishes for your estate are carried out uncontested.
Residue - Once you have made provision for your family and friends, you may wish to leave Federated Farmers the remainder, or residue, of your estate or a percentage of it to Federated Farmers.
Percentage or fraction - You may wish to leave a percentage or fraction of your estate to Federated Farmers.
Specified sum or assets - You may prefer to leave a specific amount of money, real estate, shares, bonds, items or a nominated gift to Federated Farmers.
Leave a gift in perpetuity to the FNZC Investment Fund - A gift to the FNZC Investment Fund is a gift that just keeps giving. Money held in the fund is invested as capital and left to build over time. The Federation is able to use a portion of the earned interest annually to fund its daily advocacy work, giving the organisation a secure future.
