Farming Mums NZ was set up as an online support group for Farming women and because of a need for friendship and understanding that can survive the barriers of rural isolation.

Since it’s inception in 2013 FMNZ has grown to over 10,400 members (Jan 2018) and is continuing to grow by approx 30-50 members per week. We have a very active membership; it’s not unusual to 150 individual posts and have 600+ likes on one post in a 24hr period. The group covers rural women from all age groups, from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South.
