Edward Pinckney

2020 Scholar


Edward is a director and owner of Jericho Station/Edward Pinckney Ltd a 12500 SU sheep beef and grazing property where he lives with wife Jaimee.

Edward has been involved in his family’s business since 2006, managing Morley Creek near Ohai.

The acquisition of Jericho station was a public and arduous purchase process that required a reasonable amount of campaigning publicly through politicians and the overseas investment office. He is also director and owner of Waipango Dairy Ltd a 700 cow dairy farm situated near Riverton in Southland.

Edward has held positions locally at Federated Farmers and is a member of local catchment environmental groups and a member of a progressive farm discussion group. Edward graduated from Telford, Walford College (UK) and Lincoln University. He furthered his education in business and leadership through completing the Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme and Rabobank Executive Development Programme.

Edward has a passion to see people enter the agricultural industry and develop their skills and plans to further research opportunities in this topic as part of his scholarship.

Mat’s report aims to provide a model for generating and capturing ideas to solve the wicked problems of food and agriculture.

The key element to solving this is bringing to bear the focus, passion, practical application and entrepreneurial drive of our farmers and growers. The innovation model needs to put them at the centre and build an innovation consciousness amongst our farmers and growers.
