AN INTRODUCTION TO ODPG
The Organic Dairy & Pastoral Group of New Zealand offer straight forward farmer advice and experience backed up by academic knowledge on how to run organic pastoral farms efficiently, profitably and caringly. We have a network of dozens of successful organic farmers willing to provide mentoring and workshops on what they have learned and how they farm.
We also embrace Regenerative and Biological Farming, and welcome anyone into our group who is looking for a better way to farm.
Several of our workshops and lectures have been filmed so that we can share them with our wider membership. To join ODPG and view all our resources, please visit our Membership page.
