Peoples choice in farmer of year

The vote has opened officially for the People’s Choice Award in this year’s 50th FMG Young Farmer of the Year and once again people have the chance to back their favourite young farmer. The people’s choice element of the competition was introduced back in 2016.

“Since coming on board as the principal sponsor, FMG has looked at ways to build on the competition’s popularity,” said FMG’s chief client officer Andrea Brunner.

“The People’s Choice helps the regional winners showcase themselves as ambassadors, encouraging more young people into the industry. It also gives people a chance to get more involved with the competition.”

Each of the seven grand finalists has established their own Facebook page, have their face and name plastered on a billboard within their region and have received help on how to market themselves and seek opportunities to raise their professional profile.

“The individual Facebook pages are an easy way for grand finalists to share aspects of their lives, whether it be moving to a new farm, drenching livestock, helping other farmers grow their businesses or volunteering in their communities,” said NZ Young Farmers events and marketing manager Carolyn Bennett.

“It also provides an opportunity for people who want to know more about where their food comes from to connect with some of New Zealand’s best operators.”

  • The People’s Choice winner will be revealed at the Grand Final on Saturday July 7.

The seven finalists are: Patrick Crawshaw – East Coast (Nuhaka and Central Hawke’s Bay). Cameron Black – Aorangi. Dan Bradbury – Northland. Logan Wallace – Otago/Southland. Will Taylor – Taranaki/Manawatu. Andrew Wiffen – Tasman. Josh Cozens – Waikato/Bay of Plenty.
