With our borders closed we are encouraging farmers to hire displaced NZ employees due to Covid-19, with either short term or long-term employment.

Federated Farmers is working with the Ministry of Social Development to get more kiwis into work on the land. Federated Farmers is going the extra mile providing employment contracts and have teamed up with kiwi owned and operated Kaiwaka Clothing to provide clothing and winter gear, to those new to the farming sector. 

Our stocks are limited to 300 and it is running on a first-in first-served basis. This offer is only available to members who purchased a contract from the 10th of June 2020.

What do you get?

After working through the process outlined below,  you (the farm employer) will be provided with an employment contract and an order form which will then be communicated directly to our teammates at Kaiwaka.
