Orchard Services Agreement

NZKGI have developed an orchard services agreement for growers to use when they are employing contractors to carry out work on their orchard.  The agreement includes updates to health & safety legislation and a payment schedule where the contractor must demonstrate that at least minimum wage is being paid to employees.  All growers are encouraged to make have a contract for any services they use on their orchard and this template should make the process simple.  Please contact NZKGI if you would like a word version of this document which can be viewed here.
