A surprise package was waiting for Ngaru O’Reilly when he got home from school on Tuesday 24 November.

Ngaru had the winning ticket in the draw for the tractor and baler that was donated by Drummond & Etheridge, Rolleston, for the Ngāi Tahu Farming Ltd stand at Hui-ā-Iwi.

His mum Shannon, said Ngaru had spent all night playing with it. “He loved the surprise package.”

Ngāi Tahu Farming and Whenua Kura really enjoyed meeting so many whānau at their joint stand.

“It was great to get so much interest in our operations,” said Ngāi Tahu Farming Chief Executive, Andrew Priest.

He said people had shown keen interest in the new names for the farms and Whenua Kura staff had also been very busy assisting people with information about the agricultural training courses and scholarships available in 2016.
