Welcome to FarmChat
What is FarmChat???
Where did it come from???
FarmChat is an idea that I, Ken Robinson, came up with. I’m a third generation sheep and crop farmer in North Canterbury. I felt there was a missing link within the rural community around New Zealand, and that it was time to take the concept of chatting to each other about our ideas, issues, farming practices and problems, away from the farm gate and into the 21st century.
I wanted to create a place where farmers, their partners/wives and businesses, from all parts of the rural sector, could chat, solve problems, make contacts, search for a business or supplier, discuss issues or just swap stories with people who would understand and who live and work in similar environments. I wanted to unite the rural community and give them a voice and the support of others.
So...... here is that place
An online chat room where you can chat about any subject you wish. You can post questions, solve problems, make a friend, discuss current issues, list a business or just read what others have to say.
. FarmChat is your site. I would like to see the rural community around NZ unite. I hope you will use the forums on FarmChat to voice your opinions and gain support from others in the same situations. As a single voice we are alone, united we are strong. I would also like to support the small rural businesses by giving them a place to list and promote their business in the web world.
Whatever you need I hope FarmChat can provide the answer.
This site is for you all. I hope to open up the communication lines around New Zealand and give everyone a place to go when they need to chat to a friend, neighbour or adviser. I hope you enjoy this site. If you do, then tell a friend. If you have any suggestions, I am open to comments.
