Bay of Plenty Young Grower 2024

The Bay of Plenty Young Grower competition aims to inspire and acknowledge the talents of young people employed in the fruit and vegetable sectors in the Bay of Plenty. We have some of the best fruit and vegetables in the country, so it goes without saying that there are also a number of very talented young fruit and vegetable growers in the region. In 2024, the competition will be held on the morning of July 17th, followed by an awards/gala dinner in the evening.

“The Bay of Plenty Young Grower is a fun-filled and challenging full day event in which contestants undertake a range of horticultural related theoretical and practical activities. To round off the day there will be a dinner where contestants participate in a speech competition and awards will be presented to the winners. The competitions have an emphasis on practical production (on or close to orchard/farm) skills and business skills associated with growing and industry knowledge.”
