Now into our eighth year as the principal sponsor of this iconic event, we’re excited to see Season 55 FMG Young Farmer of the Year in full swing.

How it works
District Finals are held between October and December throughout the country. The top contestants from each District Contest progress through to their local Regional Final. The seven regional finalists will compete in the FMG Young Farmer of the Year Grand Final in July. This year, Young Farmers is trialling a new Regional Final format in the Northland and Waikato/Bay of Plenty regions, seeing both the District and Regional Finals held over one weekend.

Grand Final 2023
Grand Final for Season 55 will be taking place in Timaru from the 6-8 July and will be hosted by the Aorangi Young Farmers Region.
Keep an eye on the Young Farmers website for more information closer to the time: Season 55 | Grand Final.

New year, new look for FMG’s People's Choice

After several years of running our People’s Choice competition, where the public vote for their favourite Young Farmer, we are now evolving this to be more community centric. It will involve all levels of the Contest including Agri Kids, Junior Young Farmer, and Young Farmers. Our ‘new look’ competition will be launched in the coming weeks.
