The 2015 Ballance Farm Environment Awards show that farming is still the winners when we focus on good practice and better environmental outcomes.
Our participants this year demonstrated a clear view of their farming operation and the benefits if chasing solutions for environment challenges.
Our winner was a traditional sheep and beef operation that didn't really think traditionally. The family showed clearly you can boost profits, enable farm succession and create the most enviable 'office space on farm' when you challenge convention and focus on the overall picture.
Hawke's Bay Regional Council and Gisborne District Council are proud to continue our partnership with the Awards.
