Get involved with Farming for Hospice

Since its inception in 1994, local farmers and supporters have raised and fattened thousands of beef cattle to raise money for Arohanui Hospice.

The Farming for Hospice programme aims to raise at least 10% of the hospice’s annual fundraising budget.

How does the programme work?
Grazing beef cattle
An Arohanui Hospice representative buys beef cattle, which is delivered to a farmer who has agreed to graze the cattle. When the cattle have reached slaughter weight, arrangements are made to have the cattle killed, and Arohanui Hospice receives the proceeds.

Cull cows
While the emphasis has been on beef, support from dairy farmers is increasing. As dairy farmers cull cows and send them to the works, they can also donate the proceeds to Arohanui Hospice.

Sheep, lamb, deer, pigs, slinks, crops
Arohanui Hospice invites farmers and lifestyle block holders to contribute to Farming for Hospice by donating a share of proceeds when they send animals to the works, or sell produce.

Become part of the Farming for Hospice programme today and help us to continue to provide quality palliative care and support to hundreds of patients and their families.

For information please call Derek Tuck on 06 323 3970 or John McLean on 06 324 0050. Alternatively, email farming@arohanuihospice.org.nz
