What We Do

We work with you to understand your requirements and ensure you know about the regulations for farming  in your region. We collect and manage your information to make compliance easy.


Advice & Advocacy

We can talk you through your options and work with the council on your behalf.

Farm Health and Safety Plans

Does your farm need a Health and Safety plan?

Farming is the most dangerous industry in NZ. You want your family, workers and visitors to be safe, and having an unsafe farm can result in fines and prosecution.

We can help with our cost effective farm safety plan kit.

Farm Environment Management Plans

From 2018 farm environment management plans are required every 3 years for all properties 4ha and over in the Tukituki region, covering north of Otane to south of Takapau. These are also required in parts of the Horizons and Canterbury regions. We will use the information we’ve collected from you each year as part of your nutrient budgeting to complete and submit your farm environment management plan.

Nutrient Budgeting

We can produce your nutrient budget in Overseer, giving you control of your Nitrogen and Phosphorous position. Annual Nutrient budgets are required for your Farm Environment Management Plan. Once we’ve set you up in our system, we will stay in touch with you regularly to keep your records up to date, making your annual record keeping easy.

We can develop scenarios in Overseer to show you how changes in your farm management practices can affect your nutrient position

Resource Consents

If you need a resource consent, or to renew a current consent, we can prepare your application and help you work with the council to get your consent approved.

Scenario Planning

Once you have a nutrient budget in Overseer, we can work with you to generate scenarios showing how different farming practices affect your nutrient budget. These scenarios can help with your resource consent application if you are currently exceeding your nutrient targets.

Training and Facilitation

Contact us to discuss your training or facilitation needs and we can design a package for you. We also provide a briefing service for professionals such as Real Estate Agents and Accountants whose clients are affected by compliance changes.


Whether you are looking for a farm environmental plan to meet your Regional Council or meat company requirements, or a resource consent under the new winter cropping or intensification rules, we can help.

You can choose from our full farm plan service, where we collect all the information needed for your nutrient budget, environmental plan and consent and prepare them for you, or a more DIY option using one of our kits, workshops or catchment community support.
