The Greater Hamilton is ideally placed to meet growing worldwide demand for farm products and services. 

The region has embraced nationwide food production targets by increasing diversification and pursuing value-adding opportunities. New research and development is also paving the way for increased production with a smaller environmental footprint and improved quality assurance. 

The focus is on long-term sustainability. More intensive use of land with new enterprises like horticulture, viticulture, and plantation timber continues to enhance the regionā€™s economy and improve job prospects. 

For new and existing producers, vertical integration is being expanded, with a growing number overseeing the complete paddock-to-plate process.

The potential for new agricultural manufacturing industries is equally as exciting, with the widespread availability of development-ready industrial land linked to 3-phase power, high pressure gas and water supply.
