Connecting People and the International AgriBusiness Sector:
Promoting Knowledge, Insight and Opportunity
AgriTravel has been managing agricultural farm and technical tours and business study tours for over 25 years. We have welcomed groups to New Zealand from all corners of the globe. Our customised programmes may include a specific industry or a combination thereof, such as dairy, beef, sheep, cropping, horticulture, viticulture, aquaculture, forestry and equine.
We can tailor-make an exclusive programme to suit your specific needs and undertake the necessary research to ensure you are meeting with key industry personnel and like-minded people. We can include as much or as little as you wish – typically an agricultural farm and technical tour of New Zealand will include accommodation, transport, some meals, technical visits, farm visits, sightseeing and an interpreter if required.
AgriTravel is passionate about New Zealand’s agricultural sector and the environment. Our team have a wealth of agricultural knowledge and many years of experience in the industry.
