Lifestyle and Agriculture
Lifestyle and Agriculture Supplies is a local family owned and operated business established to supply products and services to lifestyle properties in the Bay of Islands area.
Lifestyle and Agriculture focuses on the core business of supplying products to people with lifestyle blocks and animals, who are not currently well catered for by the rural supply stores. We offer email, online and telephone ordering choices as well as providing a cheap delivery service within the Bay of Islands area. The store opening hours will be user friendly and will have a later closing time than other rural supply stores to enable customers to purchase products on their way home from work. Lifestyle and Agricultural is a family-owned business that prides itself on great customer service and a can-do attitude.
