What does AGRITOUR do?
• Designs and organises individual tours to suit your specific interests: from visits to research establishments, agribusiness, forests, all types of farms; to complete programmes lasting several weeks and including accommodation, transport, sightseeing and meals.

• Provides specialist agricultural escorts and tour guides by the hour, the day, or the week. Experienced and knowledgeable AGRITOUR escorts accompany all groups. If it's anything to do with farming, horticultural or forestry - we can help.

• Typically tours include both North and South Islands, concentrate on low-cost animal production on pasture, emphasise a major interest such as dairying, sheep, fibre goats, beef, agro-forestry etc but include other types of farms, and make time for sightseeing.
