A man has been arrested after officers were threatened at a farm near Tauranga, prompting an armed police callout.

The Armed Offenders Squad descended on a property on Old Kaimai Road, or State Highway 29, on Tuesday morning after being threatened while trying to make an arrest.

Police said they had arrested a man in the afternoon without incident.

They were speaking to other occupants of the property.

Firefighters were also called to deal with a small fire in one of the buildings.
