    Event description

    An event is to catalyse unity and connection between within the sector, whilst raising awareness for rural mental health. 

    Recognising our sector is stronger together, this event is a joint effort between Future Farmers NZ and Rural Support Trust in collaboration with Future Foresters, Young Fish, The Food and Fibre Youth Network, and the Tasman and Pendarves Young Farmers groups.

    Suicide in rural New Zealand is higher than any other demographic, having a lasting ripple effect throughout a community - especially with our young people, who are often the largest statistic. Meeting and connecting to others can be challenging for rural professionals, foresters, fishers, and farmers , which is why events like this are fundamental.

    Featuring special guests Federated Farmers President Wayne Langford and Hon. Mark Patterson, plus a live band, this event is not one to be missed!

    We'll see you on the dance floor.

    A big thank you to our sponsors Halter, Grasslands, Farmers Weekly, ANZCO and Streamside Organics!

    Any extra proceeds raised from The Big Ball after expenses will go toward the Rural Support Trust*.
