Road to Young Farmers by Mrs Sarah Foley-Smith

The Road to the Young Farmers

The countdown is on for Ben Chambers & Taylor Bird, and Patrick Foley- Smith & Jacob Price who are competing in the FMG Junior Young Farmer at the end of this term. Fundraising is almost complete with a Quiz Night Next Tuesday and a few more firewood sales to go. 

PIA Quiz Night

The last couple of months have seen the team complete 4 firewood days, catering for Geraldine Lionesses, farm work, sausage sizzles, pea straw carting, and rouging. 

We have been overwhelmed by the support from the local community and would like to thank in particular Geraldine Lions Club, Rylib Farming Group, Rangitata Dairies, FreshChoice, Aorangi Vets, Pye Group, Geraldine Toy Library, Geraldine Collie Club and Norm Styles. Your support has made such a difference and has enabled a large team to join the competitors in Napier.

We have a wide range of Primary Sector trips planned, which include vineyards and orchards, Panpac, bee keeping, goat milking etc. Now our attention turns to study. The boys have 5 hours to complete 8 modules, a farmlet and speeches. I think fundraising was the easy part!
