Working together with orchardists and growers


> Resource Consent Applications

We can take the stress out of applying for resource consents.  We can prepare your application and assessment of effects.  We will also liaise with the council, iwi groups and other interested parties on your behalf.

> Irrigation & Frost Protection

We can help you to decide how much water you will need for irrigation and frost protection of your valuable crops.
