Cyclone Gabrielle

Our hearts go out to all those suffering from the devastating effects of Cyclone Gabrielle, and especially to our friends and colleagues – the farmers and growers of Hawke’s Bay.

Those most seriously affected have probably already found their way to the support offered within the farming community, but for easy reference …

Rural Support Trust

Federated Farmers (and here)

Beef and Lamb NZ

HB Fruitgrowers

NZ Apples & Pears

HB Wine

Dairy NZ 

Farmstrong

MPI Flood Guidance

HB Civil Defence

Farmers and growers are a resilient bunch, and together we will overcome this disaster.

Our Trust is formed to help identify and promote the best pathways to resilient, sustainable farming. We welcome your advice about how to best do that. 

Again, our thoughts are with those who have borne the brunt of this disaster.

Phil Schofield, Chair
On behalf of the Hawke’s Bay Future Farming Trust
