About This Website

Welcome to the website about farming in New Zealand.

First of all, there is a difference between farming and gardening. Compared to gardening or having a few animals for fun, farming usually happens on a bigger scale and has commercial intent. It includes growing fruits and vegetables and growing various animals. Examples of such animals are cows, goats, sheep, chickens and others.

Even though farming is usually about scale, if you decide to raise animals that you have never raised before, it makes sense to plan carefully, estimate your costs, expenses, and profits, start small and then go for there.

On this website, you will find a lot of useful information on the subjects of choosing animals for your farm, buying animals and taking care of them.

All the information does not presume any previous knowledge. You will find articles on an array of subjects that usually cover everything from the point of getting started from scratch. Sometimes we cover other areas of interest as well. Our editors will write about car racing, pokies (pokiereview.nz) and other games.

For example, when it comes to raising chickens on your New Zealand farm, you will learn about the housing conditions you will need to create for the birds. You will also learn about pros and cons of buying fertile eggs, young chicks or adult birds when just getting started. You will also discover what animals chickens do and don’t get along with so that you can plan your farm more effectively and efficiently.

Finally, the articles on this website contain financial tips about the costs of different animals, costs of taking care of them and creating shelter for them, which will be beneficial to new New Zealand farmers.
