open gates

Open Gates is all about showing New Zealanders what really happens on dairy farms.

Over 8,000 people came along to our Open Gates day on November 11 – you can check out what they saw here.

We know not everyone could get along to a farm, so we asked Hamish McKay, who was on the fence about dairy farming, to come and meet three of our Fonterra farmers.  Check out the videos below where our farmers opened the gates to Hamish and see what he found out.
