Growth is good. It is good for you,
your business and your staff;
it is good for the economy.
It is important to concentrate on
learning the basics ﬁrst. The skills
needed to run an average-sized farm
are different to the skills for running
a corporate family business.
As the Owner, you know all this,
but what can you do about growing
your business when you are ﬂat out
This programme will give you the
tools and conﬁdence to strengthen
your business and provide solutions
to signiﬁcant threshold issues.

In 2007 I attended an Agribusiness
Programme with my husband, Philip.
I was educated, challenged and
entertained! The programme helped
us enormously to work together as a
team and to confidently expand our
farming and tourism enterprises. We
have had invaluable help through our ICEHOUSE contacts
and have made lasting friendships along the way. Some
of The ICEHOUSE mantras of optimism, discipline and
teamwork have been great drivers in growing our business.

The ICEHOUSE Agribusiness
Programme really has given me some
amazing opportunities, one of the
main benefits was meeting so many
other likeminded business people in
the Agribusiness field from both NZ
and Australia, moving my business to
the next level in terms of diversification and size and taking
steps in the direction of putting in place a succession plan.

I was thankful to have taken the first
Agribusiness Programme run by The
ICEHOUSE. The outcomes for the
Agribusiness Programme will be of
great value to anyone looking to grow
an agribusiness. Our business is a
multiple farm dairy business that has
always been in a fast growth mode.
I feel there is the need to educate, otherwise the business
can outgrow the founder’s ability to run a larger business.

When you initially start off you have to become
a good farmer. Then you have to become a
good businessman… otherwise it can threaten
the very viability of your business.
