Farm helps fund tertiary students

Most of the time, the farm profiles I do for the NZ Farmer just are not work.

I had fun doing this story. Max often has to call my better half for business reasons so we’ve had brief but friendly conversations for a few years now… it was nice to finally meet you Max!

Young farm managers, there’s a job going here next year when Max hits the road! Thirty years is a great milestone.

Here’s the story… about how a farm east of Dannevirke has helped hundreds of young people with their tertiary studies.

It’s actually two farms now… owned by the Harwood Farm Trust set up by Myra Annie Zita Arnaboldi in 1981 as a way of combining the two great interests in her life, teaching and farming. She was a Waipawa primary school principal who inherited the Weber farm from her parents.
