We are a proud New Zealand Co-operative built by generations of farming whānau. We believe nutritious food is essential to sustain people today, and for future generations to thrive, which is why we challenge ourselves to find new ways to bring our dairy goodness to people around the world.
Farm Source is the face and place of Fonterra with our shareholders and in the local community. We are locals caring for our farming future. Our aim is to create goodness on farms, grow empowered people, and strengthen our Co-operative. Te Mātāpuna Toa Tikitini – our strength is in our collective.
About the opportunity
By joining our nationwide Farm Source store team, you’re joining a group of agricultural experts and setting yourself up for an outstanding career.
As the newest addition to our local Pahiatua store, you’ll provide sound farming product advice to our loyal customers. Getting stuck into everything from merchandising, customer service, to inwards goods and on-farm deliveries, you’ll never be bored in this fast-paced role!
With the opportunity to hone your agricultural expertise and open the door to multiple career pathways throughout the wider business, there couldn’t be a better place to start.
Please note, hours of work will be Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm and rostered Saturdays 9am – 12pm.
We’re looking for down to earth team players who’ll enjoy a role that keeps them busy and offer the chance for some great farming banter with our friendly customers.
Ideally, you’ll have some prior customer service/sales experience and a connection to the agricultural industry. That said, we’re equally open to those looking to make a move straight off farm or who are current customer experts keen to learn all about the ag/dairy industry.
Sound like you, other key things we’re on the lookout for includes:
- A full, clean drivers’ licence and the ability to drive manual (a forklift and dangerous goods license is a plus but we will provide training for the right person)
- A good level of physical fitness – you’ll have no trouble getting your daily steps in!

Sound good to you? Come join our whānau. You, me, Us Together Tᾱtou tᾱtou.
