Grant McCallum has operated his Maungaturoto beef and dairy farm since 1995. He has lived in Northland since the late 1970s and has contributed to local organisations and community groups since then.
“It’s a huge privilege to have the opportunity to campaign for Northland’s support as National’s candidate in this year’s election.”
“I love Northland and will be working tirelessly to earn the right to advocate for my home region as its next local MP in Chris Luxon’s National team. As a local MP, I’ll be laser-focused on issues that matter like the cost of living.”
“National also backs farmers. As a farmer myself, I understand the significant contribution farmers make to the economy and to Kiwis, both here in Northland and across the country. With National, I look forward to advocating for farmers and farming communities to reduce their regulatory burden and costs and let them get on with doing what they do best - leading the world in innovative farming practices that help to drive New Zealand forward.”
Grant serves as chair of the Kauri Museum at Matakohe and has been a member of the Bluegreens executive since 2001. In the past, he has served as vice president of the Northern branch of Federated Farmers and on the boards of several Northland sporting organisations.
Grant holds a Bachelor of Commerce in Agriculture from Lincoln University.
