The primary objectives of the Silver Fern Farms Hawke’s Bay Farmer of the Year is to identify, promote and celebrate excellence in pastoral farming in Hawke’s Bay.
In doing so we endorse the contribution of pastoral farming to the economic cultural and social well being of Hawke’s Bay.
For forty years the Hawke’s Bay A&P Society has championed this competition and it is seen as the premier farming event on the Hawke’s Bay Calendar.
This regionally significant competition seeks to identify those operators, be they managers or owners, that maximise the potential of the property they farm in an efficient and sustainable manner.
Past entrants comment “entering the competition has helped me think strategically about my business and the opportunity to benchmark ourselves alongside our peers has been a valuable experience”.
The judging process is conducted by an independent panel of industry participants that understand the practicalities of the modern farming business.
