Welcome to Bayleys Rural Living Canterbury, your go-to guide for lively and informative commentary on living and working in Canterbury.
In this issue we, like much of the media, are all about farmers. Our two regular agribusiness contributors give their views on how farmers can monitor their emissions improvements, and how well these are actually going, despite the negative tone of other media. We highlight that entries are now open for the Ballance Awards – an excellent and free programme that farmers and growers can call on for detailed, personalised advice on their sustainable management practices. And an inspirational story shares how one man – and his gumboots – have made a real difference for farmer wellbeing.
For those who already live and work in rural Canterbury, or for those who want to – fresh inspiration every two months.
