The Green Party believes that the agricultural sector, its outputs, supporting structures and stakeholders are at the heart of creating a sustainable society and a successful national economy.
At the core of this sector, which is so fundamental to our national identity, are our farming community and their families. We believe in viable livelihoods for those that farm the land. In an era of increasing greenhouse gas emissions, volatile international markets, product competition and new climate change agreements we believe the following policies will support farmers to craft a more secure future for their farm holdings, their local areas, their trade networks and the country as a whole.
