The Council has partnered with the NZ Farm Environment Trust to bring the Ballance Farm Environment Awards to Taranaki.
These awards recognise and celebrate good farm practices and are run in 10 regions throughout New Zealand.
All entrants go through a judging process which considers the entire environment that the farm operates within, with particular consideration to:
- Sustainable profitability.
- Environmental awareness.
- Good business practices.
- Social and community responsibility.
The 2017 awards presentation is on Wednesday 12 April at the Devon Hotel, New Plymouth. More information
