Representing Tararua farmers

Federated Farmers Tararua represents local farmers' views to the Tararua District Council and Horizons Regional Council. 

The main issues in our province are concerned with rates and how they are calculated, land use change and impacts on roading, environmental issues, (especially in relationship to water quality) and connectivity. 

The Horizons Regional Council's One Plan is a founding document for much of what happens regulatory wise on our farms. The costs associated with legal challenges and then the inability to get consents has led to uncertainty for many farming businesses. It has been reassuring to have the Feds policy team working with us to ensure our small businesses can continue to operate.

Members are encouraged to contact Executive members to find out more (see contacts below).
