Why Enter the Awards?

By entering the Ballance Farm Environment Awards, farmers and growers are given the opportunity to have their businesses evaluated by a team of highly respected and experienced peers and agribusiness professionals. Constructive advice and feedback is given in an informal setting, with visits followed by a report offering commendations and recommendations.

Award judges take a holistic approach to the judging process by evaluating every aspect of the farm/ grower business including environmental management, productivity and profitability through to family and community involvement.

The regional BFEA evenings provide a valued platform for celebration, networking, and the sharing of ideas and resources amongst farmers, agribusiness professionals, community leaders and representatives from regional and national governments.

But don't take our word for it.  Hear the stories from five former entrants and learn more about their Ballance Farm Environment Award experiences.



Or read about others in our brochures - agriculture or horticulture
