The future of farming is all about providing a natural healthy product according to John Davis of UPTAKE, based in Taupo and change is on the horizon.

Environmental pressures and soil nutritional insufficiencies are what could see the farming industry within New Zealand falter in the foreseeable future.
While the industry booms at its current state, businesses like UPTAKE in Taupo have prepared a system which will sustain farms through any pressures which arise. One thing can be said for certain; change will be required in the farming industry and many consumers are changing their expectations for it.
The consumer is now asking that farmers produce pasture fed healthy food, an objective that UPTAKE identifies as important and a priority.
“For 30 years UPTAKE have developed products and services that help reduce the reliance on chemicals, herbicides, fungicides and insecticides,” says John Davis, owner of UPTAKE. “We believe that if we satisfy this requirement, everybody benefits.
It is no secret that the environment within New Zealand is taking a hit from farming methods, as they currently are. What John and the team at UPTAKE provide is a change in farming that moves towards a natural soil system rather than one dependent on chemical saturation.
“So far we have seen success in the farms that we have implemented it on and this makes me very happy. Our clients’ success is what drives my ambition to change the market,” says John.
The soil, plant and animal testing policy at Uptake has taken a shift recently as well. In order to provide the best quality product the company have taken no shortcuts in their testing, something which is undeniably achieving results at the front end.
“We have seen blocks go from being completely infertile to showing real promise. It is a system which takes time, as they all do, but we are able to deliver on what we say we will. It is a technological change we want to keep between us and our clients – they deserve the rewards of sticking with us,” says John.
Uptake provide farming solutions across the industry and show a real care for their clients. For more information on how they can help your farm head to www.uptake.co.nz today.
