Open Gates | on farm

The whole country cares about what’s happening with the environment, including us.

That’s why some of our Fonterra farmers have been opening their gates to show you what they are doing to help protect it.

This year Open Gates is going to be on November 10.

This is a great chance to enjoy a fun family day out on the farm, where you can see where your milk comes from, chat to our farmers, sample our products and bring along a picnic to enjoy in the fresh country air.

If you want to come along, make sure you save the date and register for ticketing information.

See what happened on the day

On November 11 some Fonterra farmers opened their gates to show people what really happens on the farm. Check out what happened around the country when over 8,000 people visited our farms.
