and what farmers are saying about lean

“Thank you so much for the workshop you gave us in Marton last Friday. I found it absolutely inspirational & it will change my life.”  - Chris Turner, Beef Farmer, Manawatu

“The lean farm course has made all out team realise how much time we were wasting and with even just a few easy improvements it has made such a difference I would definitely recommend doing this course as it's help us and our staff to become more organised.” – Justin Ohearn, Share Milker, Waikato

“In a farming world which is becoming increasingly multi-faceted, a LeanFarm approach is both relevant and essential.  The emphasis on "continuous improvement" is a realistic and achievable goal .  In my experience many farmers unconsciously act with a "Lean" philosophy in mind; this course adds to your knowledge-base, challenges your practice and provides resources and skills that will benefit the whole team.  One of the best courses I have attended for tools to achieve and maintain valuable outcomes for your business at a practical and strategic level.” Katrina Barber, Farm Owner, Manawatu

“We loved your course so much. It has been so invaluable to our farm. Our team is all on board and excited with what we have already implemented and the improvements it has already made. Can't wait to keep the momentum going and continue to see the improvements in the coming years.” - Tracy and Steve Henderson, Share Milkers, Southland

“Jana and Lean Farming Systems have made me realise how small, simple, cumulative changes in our business are worth so much!” – Rachel Joblin, Farmer, Wairarapa

“As farmers we tend to stick to what we know because well it's what we know but it's a changing world that requires us to improve and raise the standard or else our business will get left behind. Lean was really good in that it made me feel uncomfortable with the status quo and forced me to relook ,re evaluate and change. Bearing in mind Rome wasn't built in a day.” – Matthew Wright, Farm Manager, Taranaki

“If all farms had these systems in place, it would be much easier for staff to do their jobs, and less frustration all round. A great course, well worthwhile.” Wendy and John Allen, Farm Owners, Manawatu

“We have about 6 staff in our farming operation and have been making slow progress in the area of efficiency, where we could see a lot of wastage in many areas. Your lean management course could not have come at a better time as it has given us the skills and tools to move forward in a meaningful manner. It is now a matter of spending time working on our business using what we have learnt to see some real advancements, which I know will make a huge difference. Thank you.” - Malcolm Reynolds, Farm Owner, Waikato

“Recently I attended a full day workshop with Jana (the Lean Dairy Farm). It was the best learning/growth event I had attended in a long time! For me it was awesome to get the affirmation that the path we were taking our business on had led others to great success! Jana shared many stories, tips and tools to dot the I’s and cross the T’s to take our business to the next level. I believe adopting a Lean approach will result in - Engaged Communication through Systems to create Efficient Productive Happy Teams!" Fraser Avery, Farm Owner, Bonavaree Farm (Marlborough Sheep and Beef Farmer of the Year 2019)

Exclusive micro videos -                          every week

We will give you exclusive access to videos that will be created specifically for you based on what you want. Our club members can request topics they are interested in, and we will create and send micro videos each week specific to these requests. So if you are struggling to motivate your team and want a video to help with this then we will create one. If you are having trouble with a specific farm metric eg empty rate, we can create a video on how to break down the problem and work through it. The opportunities are endless! While we currently create videos and post these on social media it is hard for us to know what specific topics we should address. This membership gives you a unique opportunity to have video learnings made for you to address your frustrations and problems. By diving deeper into your specific problems you can become the expert lean farmer even faster.

News, Tips & Action Plans -                      every month

We want farmers to succeed in their lean journeys so that they can reap the rewards. Based on the questions, requests and challenges we see from our members, we will develop tailored news with tips and additional information that you will receive each month. But it doesn't stop there. We believe the most important part of acquiring new knowledge is to do something with it! We are on a mission to transform the way farmers think about and operate their farms. So each month we will also send out a simple Action Plan that has been tailored to our Farmer Club members needs. This will provide another helping hand in your journey, helping you to make sustainable improvements one step at a time.

We look forward to seeing you soon at The Lean Farmer Club!
