Caleb Eady

REPRESENTING THE Northern REGION
Age: 30
Occupation: Fencing contractor & beef farmer
Club: Bay of Islands Young Farmers
 
Caleb Eady is a busy guy balancing life on a 120-hectare beef farm in Whangārei with his wife India and their two young daughters. On frosty weekend mornings, you'll find them on the farm, the girls sipping hot chocolate while Caleb and India take a break from their hectic weekdays of contract fencing and farm chores. Caleb spends his evenings studying for the competition, with his wife’s support being crucial in keeping him on track.

At 30, Caleb’s passion for farming is evident, shaped by a childhood spent on a small lifestyle block and experiences farming in New Zealand and abroad. Since returning home, he’s joined the Bay of Islands Young Farmers Club and started a fencing business. The advice and encouragement from experienced Young Farmers alumni have been a big help as he prepares for the Grand Final. With his family coming to cheer him on in Hamilton this July, Caleb is excited about what the future holds.

“This journey to the Grand Final has made me think of what I want to get out of my career going forward. It’s an exciting place to be in, and you never know what’s around the corner – especially with the competition.

"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."
