Supply to us

The southern New Zealand farmers who supply us are as passionate about producing premium quality products as we are, and we reward this passion and dedication to excellence.

We set our competitive schedule prices on a weekly basis and we never vary them for one farmer over another. Our heavy lamb contract is also available for certain specifications. We pay our farmers 14 days after processing, with no money retained for any purpose.

We have a consistent policy of basing procurement on forward contracts and at any one time the bulk of our daily requirements are contracted.

We are committed to a genuine partnership with our farmers. The contract provides certainty to farmers allowing them to plan ahead.

Suppliers Meetings

We are committed to our partners and are always looking at ways to ensure optimal reward for both sides of the partnership.

We hold supplier meetings during August each year before lambing for existing and potential clients. We contact our current suppliers prior to the event each year and invite them to bring along anyone who has not supplied Blue Sky Pastures before and is interested in supplying in future.

Meetings for 2020 will be advised in due course.

EWES AND LAMBS

We are proud of the strong partnerships we have forged with southern farmers, many of whom have been supplying to us since we began in 1987.

We procure the majority of our lambs and ewes under a contract system, as this provides the most certainty to everyone in the supply chain and optimises our ability to market product.

To apply to contract lambs and ewes, fill out the Stock Booking Form below. We will then contact you to confirm that we have received your application and make any further arrangements.

For more details on requirements for supplying lambs and ewes follow. If you have a question that is not covered here contact our procurement team.
