Our vision is to be ‘simply the best’

– for our shareholders, the environment, and the next generation of New Zealanders.

The mission of Ashburton Lyndhurst Irrigation Limited is to enable our shareholders, local mid-Canterbury farmers, to achieve the highest level of on-farm sustainability. Together, we will achieve this with water reliability, environmental stewardship, a focus on the future, cost efficiency, and by empowering people.

Our scheme is owned by 244 local farmers who value our commitment to transparency and communication. We provide our shareholders with a smooth-running water order service, reliable water supply, on-call support, and management of their consent processes.

When you choose New Zealand grown foods at the supermarket you choose Kiwi farming families dedicated to sustainably cultivating our land for future generations.
