Welcome to the Guild

The New Zealand Guild of Agricultural Journalists and Communicators is a friendly, professional society for those working with a focus on agriculture – the backbone of this country.

One of the Guild's key objectives is to have agriculture recognised for the major role it plays in New Zealand's export-oriented economy.

For 60 years, our members have brought this country's innovative and sustainable methods of food and fibre production for domestic and export markets to the attention of urban and rural New Zealanders alike. Within the Guild there is expertise in everything from animal behaviour to wine.

If you work in agricultural communication, Join Us.

If you want to communicate with the rural sector, Contact Us.
