Here at Bayleys Marlborough we love the region we call home for many reasons… The amazing scenery, the great outdoors, the local food and wine, the long hot summers, the colourful autumn, the crisp, clear winter days and the blissful, blooming spring time. But today we’re celebrating it for another reason; that reason being, our province’s success stories.
Did you know that Marlborough has experienced the third largest gross domestic product increase in New Zealand over the past five years? We really do punch above our weight. Read the full article HERE.
Three people from Marlborough were also recently recognised in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours. Dr Dianne McCarthy and Christine Brunt, both from Blenheim, and Melville Syme from Kaikoura. We would like to extend our congratulations to all of these deserving individuals, we’re proud to count Dr Dianne McCarthy, who was made a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for her services to science, business and women, as a client and friend to Bayleys Marlborough.

Your Bayleys Marlborough team are a success story in their own right, as winners of the coveted Bayleys Way Award, last year. So it seems fitting that we should be a major sponsor of a new Marlborough farming competition, that will recognise the success of sheep and beef farmers in Marlborough. These farmers now have a chance to win bragging rights as to who is tops and compete for more than $60,000 worth of prizes, with the aim of the competition to promote excellence in Marlborough farming. We have always had a close and long-standing association with Marlborough’s rural community, and are delighted to support the region’s Farmer of the Year competition.
The competition opens on June 15 and entries close August 1. The winner will be announced in September and a field day will be held on the winner’s property late October. To discuss the competition further or to register for a 2016 Entry Pack contact Greg Sheppard, Sheppard Agriculture Ltd, Mobile 0274 349340 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
