Hamish Gilberton


Hello, my name is Hamish Gilberton. I’m from a sheep and beef farm in Gisborne, where I live with my Mum, Dad, and two brothers.

I boarded at Napier Boys’ High School for five years, where I studied agriculture. My hobbies are hunting, hockey and anything to do with the outdoors.

I have been interested in farming for as long as I can remember. I have been privileged to grow up on a farm and have worked there every chance I got.

After Waipaoa, I am going to find a shepherding job in the Gisborne district and work my way up to a becoming a farm manager. But, one day, I hope to own my own farm.
