Connected Farms started its New Zealand journey by scratching our own itch and improving connectivity on the family farm
"Before improving coverage, morning walks to the one spot on the farm where we could get cell reception were very common"
Connected Farms started its journey delivering connectivity solutions in rural Australia. With experience gained in communications deployments for emergency services we know that reliability and value for money are of key importance, especially in rural and remote environments.
Our regular trips to visit our New Zealand Whanau on the South Island, often presented us with little or no connectivity options, a challenge when you are trying to run a business. This prompted us to ‘scratch our own itch’ and bring the same Connected Farms service offering to New Zealand.
Live Local, Support Local
We operate out of our base in rural South Canterbury and employ local people in our team and use local suppliers where ever we work. Its part of the Connected Farms ethos, we like doing business with locals and supporting the local community.
All the Connected Farms leadership team have farming in their heritage. It helps us understand the importance of getting our solutions right for farmers. We know there is not a “one size fits all” solution to on-farm connectivity, which is why we tailor a connectivity solution to each and every farm. Like to find out more?
