Join us at the Land Diversification Opportunities Discussion to find out about alternative land use options for Hawke’s Bay.

Is your land giving you the best return on your investment? Are you looking to farm your land more sustainably?

Hemp, hops, berries, goats... the options for land use are becoming more diverse than traditional crops and pastoral farming. With a growing importance being placed on sustainable farming practices there is also increased interest in diversification and options that will have a positive impact on our environment.

You will hear from up and coming companies producing value added products that are looking for growers or land here in Hawke’s Bay. You will also hear about some of the latest tech being used in agriculture, what iwi are doing in the Maori land use space, funding options available for sustainable farming, plus there is plenty of time to network with parties interested in investing in primary industry over lunch.

If you have land and you are considering your options or would like to invest in primary sector in Hawke’s Bay then this event will showcase some viable options and give you the chance to ask some questions to those who are already active in the industry.
