Ravensdown exists to enable smarter farming for a better New Zealand. Our products, expertise and technology help farmers reduce environmental impacts and optimise value from the land.

Whether it’s food grown for livestock or for humans, we are an integral part of the food creation process. We are the only co-operative on the planet that tests for, advises about, buys, ships, stores, spreads, measures and maps food-creating nutrients and fertiliser in a truly integrated way. We also provide products and services in environmental mitigation, agronomy and animal health sectors.

When it comes to the growing prosperity of New Zealand, stronger rural communities and a progressive, environmentally considerate agrisector, Ravensdown is part of the solution.
