Right across Te Tai Tokerau, we’re working with others to care for the land and the waterways it impacts on.
These are some of the partnerships and projects we’re involved with:
‘Extension 350’ was launched in 2016 to help farmers in Northland to share knowledge between farmers and gain access to specialist advice. E350 is part of the Tai Tokerau Northland Economic Action plan and is supported by Northland Inc, Ministry for Primary Industries, Northland Regional Council, DairyNZ and Beef + Lamb NZ.
The project involves ‘target farmers’ gaining advice on three key areas of their farming business: profitability, environmental sustainability and farmer wellbeing. The target farmers are mentored and share learning with other farmers in their relevant industry cluster.
Our regional council land management team provides much of the environmental sustainability advice via a Farm Environment Plan for each target farm.
