2016 Young Grower of the Year

Congratulations to Andrew Hutchinson, from AS Wilcox in Pukekohe who was named 2016 Young Grower of the Year at the Natioanl Final on July 20.

Young Grower of the Year is an annual competition run by Horticulture New Zealand to find the best young fruit or vegetable grower in the country.

The focus of the competition is to give young people working in the industry recognition, develop their skills and foster individual young grower leadership.

The 2016 competition series is now complete and we will be updating the website later in the year when 2017 competition dates are set. Regional competitions usually run from April - July.
