Everyone deserves fresh, healthy food grown in a way that’s good for our climate, rivers, wildlife and communities. 

Over the past two decades, farming in New Zealand has changed. Family farms are steadily being replaced by corporate, monoculture farms, with dairy cows crammed into every corner.

Industrial dairying is making our climate, our water and our communities sick. Agriculture is New Zealand’s biggest climate polluter, largely thanks to all those dairy cows. Our rivers and lakes are in the worst state they’ve ever been. Even our drinking water is at risk.

The way New Zealand farms affects all of us. We’re standing together to transform agriculture and shift Aotearoa to to regenerative farming that works with nature, not against it. Read on to learn more.

Why it matters 

We’re already seeing the shocking effects of the climate crisis. Places like Australia and California have faced raging wildfires. Storms and other destructive weather events are set to become more frequent and intense. 

Even if we stopped using all fossil fuels tomorrow, we’d still be on the path to global heating because of the way we’re farming. 

But we also need to make sure everyone has access to fresh, healthy food grown in a way that’s good for our climate, rivers, wildlife and communities. 

Farming can be part of the climate solution, but we need to make some changes.
