Our Trustees

The New Zealand Farm Environment Trust is governed by an up to eight member board.

The Trust is governed by an up to eight member board consisting of:

  • Three members voted "at large" by our regional management committees.
  • Two members elected from the Council of Regions.
  • One appointed member as a representative of all sponsors.
  • Up to two members appointed by the Board of the New Zealand Farm Environment Trust.

In addition there are four Trust Support representatives, including management and operational roles. The Trust is also supported by a national network of regional volunteers who manage the judging process for the Ballance Farm Environment Awards and Field Day events.

We are passionate about New Zealand agriculture and horticulture and celebrate what New Zealand farmers and growers are achieving. The New Zealand Farm Environment Trust and Ballance Farm Environment Awards are built on the dedication of our nationwide army of volunteers who support our drive towards positive change in environmental practices.
