Rotorua sheep and beef farmers John and Catherine Ford have been named Supreme Winners of the 2015 Bay of Plenty Ballance Farm Environment Awards (BFEA).

The Fords own 1240ha Highlands Station – a large hill-country farm, south of Rotorua.

Sitting within the Lake Tarawera and Rotokakahi catchment, the Central Plateau farm’s distinctive contour was shaped by volcanic activity which flattened forests, carved out hill faces and left the area covered in Phosphate-rich mud.
