Dennis Main

Age: 30
Occupation: Builder
Club: Piarere Young Farmers
Growing up on the family farm in Tīrau, 30-year-old Dennis Main always knew farming would play a significant role in his life. From farming to engineering, back to farming, and then building, Dennis has never strayed far from rural life. Now a builder, Dennis aims to own a small block of land to keep animals, as farming is where he feels most at home. Having spent his childhood outdoors on the Tīrau farmland, he developed a strong, lasting connection to the land.

As a Grand Finalist for the Waikato Bay of Plenty region, Dennis is drawing on his diverse skills to outsmart his competitors. With support from his local community, his Young Farmers club, and past winners, Dennis is excited to compete and make new connections in the farming community. With his partner and family cheering him on, he’s ready to take on the challenge and leave a mark before ageing out of the competition.

“Young Farmers has always been a good place to meet like-minded people. You don’t have to be farming full time to fit in, it’s full of a good bunch of people who are all wanting to get places in the farming industry one way or another.”


"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."
