Hackham and Berseem are set to become first rural areas to receive their own “Farm of The Year” from the National Farmers’ Federation.
Hackham Town Council will announce the winners of the awards this morning.
“Hackham Town has a rich history of farming, and this year’s award is designed to highlight our city’s commitment to sustainability and community engagement,” said Mayor Paul O’Leary.
“As part of this, the Council has chosen the top five ‘farm of the year’ awards, and Hackham is one of the five.
The other top five were also chosen by Hackham’s community and the community’s representatives.”
The awards were announced at Hackham Village Council’s Annual Community Meeting this morning (Wednesday, April 18) to honour the local community.
“These awards are a recognition of our farmers and their efforts and efforts are reflected in the success of HackhamTown,” Mr O’Reilly said.
“I’m very proud to be the first mayor in the country to receive the award.
It shows that the people of HackhartTown have been working together and we’ve achieved amazing results.”
The award will be presented to Hackham Borough Council at their annual meeting on Wednesday (April 19).
Hackham City Council was awarded the ‘Farm and Estate of the Month’ for September 2018.
Hackley is also set to receive its own “farm of year” this year, the Hackley Local Landholders’ Association said.
It said the awards were a tribute to the hard work of local farmers and landowners in the past five years.
“It’s been an amazing 10 years and a very good year,” Hackley City Council Mayor Tim Moore said.
Mr Moore said Hackley Town Council was pleased to receive “Farm and Estates of the month” for September.
“We have had a great year.
It’s been a great opportunity to get out and see what’s new and exciting,” he said.
He said the Hackleys’ success had been driven by the work of the Hackeshers.
“The Hackesher community has been incredible.
We have the highest proportion of farmers in the city, but they are just as keen to help out,” Mr Moore told news.com in an interview earlier this month.
“They’re there to support the community and do everything possible to help us out.”
Mr Moore is the Mayor of Hackley from March 2019 until April 2020, and has been a councilor for the past seven years.
He is the third Hackley Mayor to receive a “Farm & Estate of The Month” award, joining the likes of Nickie Hales and Michael Hines.
He has also served as a member of Hackleys Advisory Board and the Hackys’ Agricultural Development Advisory Committee.
He served as the Town Council’s candidate in the 2016 election.
“A lot of the time people think of farming and their work and the work that farmers do as a hobby, but it is actually a very important job,” Mr Poynton said.
The “Farmers and Their Community” Awards are a collaboration between Hackham Council and the Agricultural Development Council.
Hack Ham Council said Hackham was one of only a handful of local councils in Australia that received its own award in 2017.
The awards are the result of Hack Ham’s successful participation in the Hackham Community Land Trust.
“In 2017 we took a huge step forward, we gave Hackham the opportunity to be a Landmark City and the people and organisations that supported it through it are now celebrating their achievements,” said Mr Moore.
“This year we’ve been able to receive our own ‘farm and estate of the months’ award and we look forward to celebrating this as a result of the work we’ve done over the past 10 years.”
Hackham Mayor Tim O’Brien said the award had been a “big success” for Hackham.
“There’s been no doubt the people in Hackham are amazing.
We’re very proud of the support that the community has given us.
They’re just as much of a part of HackHamTown as the Hackers themselves,” he told newscom.
“What we’ve got now is really a wonderful example of how to work together.”
The Hackham County Council is also looking forward to receiving a “farm & estate ofthe month” award.

Our community and our local community have been outstanding throughout our lives and we want to see them continue to contribute,” Mr Moles said.

Hackney has been the only municipality in NSW to receive an award from the Federal Government in 2017 and 2018.
