Federated Farmers is looking forward to hearing some "fresh views from around the table" on environmental issues following the announcement of the new Cabinet earlier this week.
Farmers have been vocal about their opposition to certain new regulations introduced this year - in particular rules around freshwater, which they say are impractical and unworkable.
Following this month's general election, there were suggestions some farmers who normally voted National chose to vote Labour in a bid to give the party enough votes so they could govern without the support of the Greens.
The election saw many normally safe National seats turn red, including Rangitata, East Coast and Wairarapa.
Although farmers may be relieved Labour did not need to rely on Greens' support to govern, Federated Farmers' environmental spokesperson Chris Allen says there are still many concerning parts of the Government's environmental policy for the agriculture sector.
"I don't say that our fears have been allayed in any way, shape or form," Allen told Dominic George on Magic Talk's Rural Today on Friday.
"We've got a changing world out there, we've just got to make sure whoever is in Government recognises there's a whole suite of things going on internationally and domestically that will affect confidence in farmers.
"How the ministers engage about that is what will reassure farmers. It's about whoever's there just making sure they've got open ears and they tune into what's going on in agriculture."
It was no secret farmers did not see eye to eye with former Conservation Minister Eugenie Sage during the last term, and Allen said he looked forward to working with the new minister Kiri Allan.
"It's a new dynamic and I really look forward to seeing where Kiri Allan's going and what she wants to do with conservation, because that's a big part of my portfolio as well."
