Agriculture Policy – NZ Outdoors Party


Our Vision: We want to create a country where we are admired by the world not just because of our wonderful natural environment, but because of the way we live. A way of life that protects and enhances that environment.

The New Zealand Outdoors Party supports a return to farming with nature, using principles similar to permaculture,  “agro-ecology” and “regenerative agriculture”. 

We promote agricultural practices which build up healthy thriving soils, rich in carbon and diverse microbes which in turn will grow healthy resilient crops and healthy nutritious food. These practices put the carbon back into the soil where it belongs to address concerns about climate change.

We encourage localism, with farmers playing a central role in creating healthy thriving communities.

We support communities taking back control over their food sovereignty with home, school and community vegetable gardens and farmers markets, so people can get their hands back into the soil and reconnect with nature and the outdoors, and so families and communities can build up self-sufficiency and resilience.
