The Road to the Young Farmer Final

The Road to the Young Farmer Final

Watch as the top New Zealand Young Farmers battle it out in one of the toughest competitions in the country.

From Kaikohe to Alexandra, The Road To The Young Farmer Final follows the fortunes of seven Young Farmers as they make their way to the 2014 Grand Final of the ANZ Young Farmer Contest.

The series, hosted by Mark Leishman, airs for seven weeks beginning with the Tasman Regional Final, Sunday 18 May, 9.30pm on TVNZ Heartland.

“The ANZ Young Farmer Contest is nothing short of an iconic New Zealand event,” said Heartland General Manager, Juliet Peterson.

This competition is not for the faint-hearted, it is a gruelling test of skills, strength, and expertise on all matters of agriculture.

“TVNZ Heartland is very proud to be able to bring viewers across the country an insight into what it takes to compete in the tough competition,” commented Mrs Peterson.

The series concludes with a live-broadcast, Saturday 5 July 10.15 pm TV ONE, of the Grand Final Evening Show at CBS Arena. Here, contestants are tested in a quick-fire quiz round and by the end of the evening one person will be named ANZ Young Farmer Contest Champion and go home with nearly $70,000 in prizes.

TVNZ Heartland captures all the action in The Road To The Young Farmer Final starting Sunday 18 May, 9.30pm on Heartland. TVNZ Heartland is on Sky and Igloo Channel 017.
