Supporting your farm team
In this time of uncertainty, it’s a good idea to check in frequently with your team – and even your neighbours and community - and understand the questions they have about the effects of COVID-19 and its potential impact on your farm.
If you have employees from overseas who may normally be planning a trip home, think through implications of travel restrictions and how you may be able to support them to keep in touch with family remotely.
How are you set up as things evolve?
Don’t forget about your networks of farming colleagues and friends - it might be useful to talk through how you might support each other in different scenarios. Keep up to date with developments and advice from the Ministry of Health.
