P2p Farmer Conference 2019 mobile final

Chateau On The Park, Christchurch
30 July-1 August, 2019

Join us in Christchurch from the evening of 30 July for the Silver Fern Farms 2019 Farmer Conference. 

The full-day programme on 31 July will bring plate and pasture together, you will hear from Silver Fern Farms, our customers and farmers, as well as inspirational speakers who will share insights into international food trends and the red meat industry.

A pre-conference Welcome BBQ will be held from 6pm on Tuesday 30 July which will include the final of the 2019 Silver Fern Farms Boning Competition. This is a demonstration of the skill, expertise and speed of our butchery staff.

The Gala Dinner will be held at the Airforce Museum, Wigram where a unique food experience will celebrate our natural, grass-fed, 100% Made of New Zealand red meat.

We are offering post-conference tours on the morning of 1 August to either a Silver Fern Farms Farmer Partner farm or a tour of our Belfast Beef Plant. Both options will be followed by a BBQ lunch.
