Extension 350

Farmers learning from farmers

Extension 350 is here to help Northland farmers succeed. Not just with a healthier bottom line, but with a healthier environment and farming community too.

Extension 350 is a long-term farmer learning from farmer extension programme.  It was launched in 2016 and is led by Northland farmers. Our projects focus is on-farm and for farmers.

We know that Northland farmers are doing great things, but we also know there is room to improve.  When you’re focussed on the day-to-day running of your business, it can be hard to see the bigger picture, get new ideas and have the confidence to implement them. That’s what Extension 350 is all about – Northland farmers learning from experienced Northland farmers and being able to see their business with fresh eyes. Having other farmers and people you trust to challenge your thinking and systems can make all the difference to your farming business.
