Ballance Farm Environment Awards

The Ballance Farm Environment Awards recognises and celebrates good farm practices which promotes sustainable land management through an annual awards programme which is now run in 11 regions throughout New Zealand.

We believe that positive role models and opportunities for learning are the most effective tools to improving farm practices.

Being part of the awards is a stimulating, informative and enjoyable opportunity to benchmark your farm with other like-minded farmers in your region.

All entrants go through a judging process which considers the entire environment that your farm operates within, with particular consider to:

  • sustainable profitability
  • environmental awareness
  • good business practices
