Farmers Air has been re classified as an essential service for our rural community, and will remain so for the duration of the period our nation is under Alert Level 4 restrictions. This is not a privilege we take lightly, and one we feel very fortunate to have been granted.

In accordance with MPI requirements, we are only permitted to proceed with Aerial Topdressing work which is deemed essential to avert a feed deficit and ensure appropriate animal welfare going into winter months. With this in mind, high analysis orders and incomplete work are our only priorities until Alert level 4 has been downgraded or the guidelines amended.

In order to ensure we adhere to government guidelines, and to keep customers, staff and families safe we have made some temporary changes to our procedures that will apply throughout this period.

ORDERS Please direct all orders and enquiries to Operations Manager Chris Holden: 0800 68 60 60

MAPPING Please complete all mapping and hazard notes online, via Map My Farm OR through your local fertiliser rep. If you require any assistance please email

SPREADING All operational areas e.g. the airstrip are closed to all persons other than our essential staff. Please Do Not come up to the strip to see the pilot. For any communications you wish to relay to the pilot these can be done so via a phone call to Operations Manager Chris Holden: 0800 68 60 60

OFFICES & FARMERS AIR BASE All onsite offices are now closed during Level 4. All staff are working from home. We need to take extra time during this ever-changing environment to ensure we are meeting strict new protocols and protecting our staff and rural community. We appreciate your patience and understanding and will continue to deliver the service we pride ourselves on.
