Toby Proude


Hi, I’m Toby Proude. I grew up on a lifestyle block just out of Ohakune and went to Palmerston North Boys’ High School. I have two older sisters and, in my spare time, enjoy skiing, hunting and fishing.

I have been interested in farming all my life and have taken any opportunity I’ve had to get amongst it in the weekends and holidays.

After Waipaoa, I would like to get a shepherding job. Then I’d like to move up the ranks, eventually managing a large hill country sheep and beef farm.
