Archie Woodhouse

Age: 22
Occupation: Sheep & beef farmer
Club: South Wairarapa Young Farmers
Archie Woodhouse, 22, works with his dad and brother on their 1000-hectare sheep and beef farm near Eketāhuna. He’s all about sustainable farming, finding ways to minimise environmental impact while managing stock smartly.

A recent AgriBusiness grad from Lincoln University, Archie recently competed in the East Coast Regional Final. Preparing for it helped him brush up on his practical skills and learn from his parents, who’ve had the farm since he was born.

Archie’s excited about exploring the rural professional sector and diving into new tech and innovations before eventually aiming for his big goal: farm ownership.

“I think studying and working in other places has given me a different perspective on what I see as sustainability. It may be a buzzword in the industry, but it’s important that, as farmers, we’re doing our best to care for the land."

"We're all role models, everyone who's involved in the sector has the opportunity to inspire others towards the sector and be a role model. Farmers are a bloody awesome group of people."

Vote for East Coast in the FMG Region-Off

The East Coast Region has perhaps faced the most difficult of challenges in the last 18 months, however the resilience and willingness of people to help one another has been seen time and time again. The core of hill country sheep and beef, this area has faced challenges with land use change and its effects on rural communities, however the people are undoubtedly resilient and rally together to build stronger community ties with farming at its core.

When you vote for East Coast, you are voting to support Melanoma New Zealand and the East Coast team.
