We are thrilled to announce Sophie Hawkins as this year’s recipient of the Align Farms Agriculture Scholarship! Currently a 4th year student at Lincoln University, pursuing a Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Hons) Majoring in Environmental Management,
For more than a decade, students from South Dakota State University (SDSU) studying a wide variety of academic programmes such as agricultural business, animal science, horticulture, agronomy, dairy production, and pre-veterinary medicine, have been visiting New Zealand farms to gain a comprehensive overview of our agriculture. Hewson Farms and Align Farms were the last two stops on a jam-packed, whistle-stop tour of some of New Zealand’s leading primary producers, manufacturers, and decision-makers across both islands.
Today’s farmer panel features two dynamic young entrepreneurs who have recently made appearances on the iconic Country Calendar TV programme – one the director of the Restore Native Plant Nursery, the other the chief executive of Align Farms. Plus, we also ponder emissions pricing and wool carpets in schools.
