Become a Shareholder 

Become a shareholder

Being a shareholder and having an account with Farmlands also means you'll automatically be given a Farmlands Card. It's a convenient way to purchase goods and services at over 7,000 Card Partner locations throughout New Zealand. While there is a credit-limit on the card, the card itself is not a credit-card and the expectation is that you will pay off your account in full each month.

There is a one-off requirement for you to purchase 500 shares, worth $1 each. This can either be added to your first statement or paid in four instalments, one of $200 then three of $100.

Sign up is an easy online process and should only take about 10 minutes to complete. If you're unable to do it in a single session, the form will autosave and you can come back to it later.
