Welcome to the Guild
One of the Guild's key objectives is to have agriculture recognised for the major role it plays in New Zealand's export-oriented economy.
For nearly 60 years, our members have brought this country's innovative and sustainable methods of food and fibre production for domestic and export markets to the attention of urban and rural New Zealanders alike. Within the Guild there is expertise in everything from animal behaviour to wine.
