The Organic Dairy & Pastoral Group is a group of farmers who see a positive future for organic, biological and regenerative farmers and their customers. We are continuously exploring all opportunities that help and support farmers of NZ. We also see ourselves as a lobby group to industry and support businesses, as without such a common voice, farmers concerns are often never heard.

We welcome and encourage anyone interested in organic, biological and regenerative pastoral farming and have two classes of membership:

  • FARM MEMBERSHIP for farmers and those with an interest in farming.
  • COMMERCIAL MEMBERSHIP for suppliers, service providers and educators.
