Thanks to the support of the Trust’s partners, a range of awards are given out in each of the participating regions, including one Regional Supreme Winner.

“The events celebrate everyone who entered – not just those who are eligible for awards – because all are worthy of being recognised for the great work being done on their farms and orchards,” says New Zealand Farm Environment Trust General Manager James Ryan.

Every year, farmers and growers from around Aotearoa are invited to participate in the awards programme. It’s a stimulating, informative and enjoyable opportunity to benchmark against other food and fibre producers in the region.

All entrants go through a judging process that considers the entire environment that farms operate within, particularly sustainable profitability, environmental awareness, good business practices, and social and community responsibility.
