From wet weather gear to farming: 6 Twitter accounts to follow right now

We spend a lot of time talking about what it’s like to be a Kiwi farmer. Mostly it means plenty of discussion about wet weather gear. But sometimes it means getting in touch with our roots and keeping up to date with everything going on back home.

With that in mind, here are our favourite Twitter accounts to not-so-secretly trawl.




If you love farming-related memes, industry new and events, and useful insights from the experts, then you’ll definitely want to follow this one.


2. The Squatting Farmer


Did you know there’s an entire genre dedicated to the appreciation to farmers – in all their wet weather gear glory – squatting in fields for a good photo opportunity? Well, you do now. Enjoy.


3. DairyNZ


This is probably one of the best online resources for getting your Kiwi farming fix. You’ll get plenty of industry insights here, plus some nice blogging content too. Win-win.


4. Farmers Weekly NZ


Again, what we like about Farmers Weekly is that it excels in creating its own lovely blogging content. Follow this Twitter account and you’ll keep up to date with everything from honey production to government grants for farmers. It’s like a one stop shop, really.


5. Dr Jake Smith


If you’ve had a long day and need a pick-me-up, check out Dr Jake Smith’s Twitter account. It’s full of inspirational scenes straight off the farm – and provides real-life insight into the challenges and triumphs of working in this industry.

We’re big fans of his photography too.


6. Federated Farmers


These guys have been leading and informing the farming industry since 1899. It’s no small achievement, so it’s definitely one of the most important resources for farmers on the internet. There’s good Twitter engagement with other experts too.
