In 2019 the Hawke's Bay A&P Society will host the Royal A&P Show of New Zealand. The Premier Agricultural Show in New Zealand will bring competitors from all over New Zealand to Hawke's Bay.
The team at Showgrounds Hawke's Bay are working on new developments to grow and strengthen our commitment to the Land and its People.
Growing the knowledge bank of the Agriculture Industry is important to us. The Hawke's Bay A&P Society is committed to engaging with learners of all levels, we do this through a variety of ways and working with key providers.
The Agricultural sector needs people to thrive and grow - the Hawke's Bay A&P Society has an important role to play in fostering a passion for working on the land in our youth and developing career pathways to enable and encourage employment in the Primary Sector.
The team are proud to bring you FOUR exciting programmes for this year's A&P Show.
