Membership of the NZDFA is voluntary and open to NZ residents: farmers, business contacts and associated parties interested in NZ deer farming.
The annual subscription supports the NZDFA at national level to represent deer farmer interests over a broad spectrum of activities, including environment, traceability, research and farmer-led learning. Branches are also supported via a $25.00/head annual capitation fee paid out to help add value to regional DFA activities. The 2022-23 year subscription was $150 (including GST).
The NZDFA relies on this relatively modest subscription to function effectively, while continuing to deliver a strong, independent voice for deer farmers.
