Notice from the Ministry for Primary Industries:

Help and advice is available for you as droughts continue, and afterwards into recovery. 

Call your Rural Support Trust: 0800 787 254.

There are 14 Trusts around the county, who work with Government, industry, and emergency services in events like drought. We can help connect you with professionals including farming or business advice, suppliers, financial information, health, and counselling services.

Rural Support Trust people understand rural agribusiness: dry stock, dairy, horticulture, forestry, cropping, poultry, and rural contracting.

Our services are free and confidential. We can talk over the phone or come to you.
