GAIA award winners

Wairarapa Eco Farm has been awarded not one but three awards in the inaugural Green Agriculture Innovation Awards (GAIA) NZ 2014. We are proud winner of the BIOSEA HORTICULTURE AWARD and the TM AGRICULTURAL INNOVATION AWARD and in addition we've been awarded 'silver' recipient of the PADDOCK TO PLATE award. "Already well established in Australia, this award is New Zealand’s inaugural event in celebration of producers who are championing the use of soil-friendly practices that support ecological and economic bottom-line benefits while improving the quality of the food on which the health of the nation depends."
