FMNZ Leveled Up Ep6: Lyn Webster

Have you heard of 'Pig Tits and Parsley Sauce'? What about that lady in the news who, for 2018, set herself a budget of $1000 for groceries?! Lyn Webster has been dairy farming on her own for 15 years throughout provincial New Zealand. From an urban background in banking, admin and retail management, she went into farming at 31. Lyn went to live on a dairy farm in Stratford, Taranaki where her then partner was employed. My goal is to keep on milking cows until I am an old old lady and then hopefully have enough money to buy a little house near the sea.” After a year the couple brought 170 cows and went 50/50 sharemilking. Unfortunately the relationship ended and Lyn moved out with 2 young girls, an old dog and a Honda Ascot car, which she still drives, although she claims its the worst thing ever! Circumstances saw her managing a 130 cow dairy farm when the herd owner broke his leg, and made the great decision to hire a female single parent with limited experience! A wet February s...

FMNZ Leveled Up; Grow BOMA NZ Special - Melissa Clark-Reynolds

The last interview I had the privilege of conducting at the Grow 2019 Agri-summit was with the fascinating, Melissa Clark-Reynolds. We talked farming business models and whether farmers are farming the land or the product. We covered farm diversification and how that can bring women back into the farming business. Also about how urban women ARE actually interested in how we farm - we feed their families after all! We also talked carbon, family/children and whether there is such a thing as 'balance' - Melissa's theory on balance is one to hear! I thoroughly enjoyed this discussion and think you will too. Melissa Clark-Reynolds, ONZM, is the first independent director of Beef + Lamb New Zealand—the farmer-owned, industry organisation representing New Zealand's sheep and beef farmers. She is best known as a digital strategist, foresight practitioner, and professional director, and has 25 years’ experience as an entrepreneur and in the business startup community.

FMNZ Leveled Up; Grow BOMA NZ Special - Rachel Taulelei + Kerensa Johnston

Kerensa Johnston and Rachel Taulelei are two incredible Maori women leading the way in agribusiness. I had a fantastic chat not only about what they are involved with now, but WHY they do it. We talk about the values and objectives of Kono and Wakatū and how the two businesses work together. How they balance life, family and career, how they integrate family into a corporate working environment and what their tips are for you. It's also fantastic to hear how Rachel and Kerensa's working life reflects and inspires their daughters! I feel it would do them, and you a disservice to not include their full bio's below: Kerensa is the Chief Executive of Wakatū Incorporation, which has approximately 4,000 shareholders who descend from the original Māori land owners of the Nelson, Tasman and Golden Bay Regions – Te Tau Ihu.

FMNZ Leveled Up Ep4: Hayley Rhind, White Chalk

Hayley Rhind is the designer and director of White Chalk which she started with her sister in-law Ginny by accident. Hayley thought she was destined to be the boy on their Marlborough sheep and beef farm until a few clothes she designed and got Ginny to make while living in Vietnam turned into a million dollar business and some very steep learning curves. With no experience in fashion Hayley now works along side Ginny, brother Nathan, a team of 10 and is very proudly New Zealand made. Hayley and I talked about how the business was started, why they decided to move production from Vietnam to New Zealand, what it's like working with family and their upcoming plans with launching two new labels this spring!!

Amy Keller is Founder and CEO of PurePlus+, a plant based powder created from up-cycled fruits and vegetables that otherwise would be wasted, used to add a nutrient boost into a range of food products including beverages, nutrition bars, super food powder blends, and baking products.

Amy and I talk food waste statistics, and the fact that we can already feed 10 billion people, the global population estimate for 2050, but we waste a huge percentage of it. Listen in to hear the statistics.

FMNZ Leveled Up Ep3: Gerard Vaughan

Now firstly you must excuse my head-cold-voice and brain! I always enjoy talking to Gerard, he's thoughtful, insightful and has a unique 'way' about him that makes him very comfortable to talk to. Gerard has a fantastic history from training to become a priest to teaching to counselling and more. Gerard is now a consultant who founded and runs the FMG funded rural mental health campaign, Farmstrong. The Farmstong team and researchers did a study last year, titled "Farming Women on Wellbeing". This research produced a fantastic range of findings to help industry understand the issues facing rural women while also providing data allowing us to prioritise and work out what to attack first. We also talk about the new, upcoming #metime campaign!
