Old crop contest is back
A crop competition which brought trophies back life after more than 70 years, is back for another year.
Taranaki Federated Farmers’ Turnip and Fodder beet competition was re-established in 2017 after the trophies were found in a cupboard — some dating back to the early 1930s.
The competition was put on hold last year due to the drought.
The Turnip Cup was first awarded to J Phillips in 1933 Some trophies in the New Plymouth office date back to 1929, including a cup for best carrots in North Taranaki, won by J H Paulger in 1934. ●The competition is open to all Taranaki farmers.To enter, email Jessie on Taranaki@fedfarm.org.nz.
