One voice to represent many.
Federated Farmers has been representing rural land-owners for over 130 years. In the spring of 1899 in Northland, Broadwood farmer, A.G.C. Glass and a group of farmers formed the first constituted branch of the New Zealand Farmers' Union - which became Federated Farmers in 1945.
Since that spring day, our staff and elected farmers have been a collective voice in decision-making, speaking to all levels of government directly to get a positive outcome for our members.
Through our advocacy at a local and national level, we have influenced decisions around legislation affecting stock and land, the supply of farm needs, taxation and rating.
We understand policy can be a complex game, and we have a desire to simplify it for our members. we care deeply about the future of rural New Zealand and we want our members to have a bright future. Above all, we want to benefit rural new Zealand and empower farmers to continue.
We Exist to empower farmers.
