Willie White joins Trust Board

The HB Future Farming Trust is delighted that Willie has joined as a Board member.

Willie completed a B.Com (Ag) at Lincoln University and after a stint overseas was in rural banking for 8 years in the Waikato and lower north island. He now manages the 1100 cow family dairy operation, which has been transitioning to a regenerative organic system since 2019. 

Living on the farm with wife Michelle and three young children, Willie has a keen interest in the Ashley Clinton community, having been involved in the establishment of the Tukipo Catchment Care Group, the Sherwood Cricket Club (with its home ground located on the dairy farm) and sits on the Sherwood School Board of Trustees. He completed the 2020 Fonterra Governance Development Programme. 

Why the HB Future Farming Trust? 

Says Willie: "Resilient and future-ready farming businesses need to farm in ways that look after people, planet and profitability. Having made the transition within our own business, I believe there is a huge opportunity for farming in New Zealand to evolve to meet these challenges."
