Support the Association

The Association is the collective voice for Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers- an industry that is a major economic provider for the region. Horticulture is the third largest primary sector by revenue and a $6.4 billion economy for New Zealand.

Your HBFA membership connects you to local growers, regional issues and events. If you are paying a levy to your respective sector body, this doesn’t automatically make you a member of the Association- so sign up now!

Your membership provides you with:


  • Invites and networking opportunities – a chance to meet fellow growers and industry leaders. Attend local workshops and seminars
  • Horticulture news – the HBFA e-newsletter brings you news and articles from across the sectors and industry
  • The opportunity for voting rights – only members have voting rights at the Associations’ Annual General Meeting. Decisions about the Association are made through this mechanism, so every vote counts!
  • Member Intel alerts – new to 2020, only members receive these text alerts to important news or information as soon as it comes to hand.

Support the Association and your industry!


Our generous sponsors provide more than financial support to the Association- they help raise awareness of what we do – to protect, foster and promote horticulture in Hawke’s Bay.

We believe in creating meaningful relationships – our sponsors are part of an extraordinary team of local businesses and individuals who are passionate about horticulture.
