I'm a part-time sheep/beef farmer in North Canterbury and director of Latham Ag Consulting. I specialize in the South Island High Country where I see many examples of farming and conservation integrating successfully with one another. The Farm Environment Plan is a great way of identifying and demonstrating management of environmental risks on farm, and collectively they are an awesome tool for marketing our products. Catchment Groups empower communities and enable landowners to act together towards a common vision.
