It is my absolute pleasure to be part of the rural and lifestyle team at Ray White Te Awamutu. I have been a dairy farmer in the Waipa District all of my adult life and I’m proud to say that I am a local - the countryside, the location and most importantly, the people. I have great pride in saying that Te Awamutu is my hometown. My wife Bev and I were both schooled locally and now have three wonderful adult daughters, two that live locally and one a bit further afield in Wellington. Our sixteen year old son is still living at home and enjoys rugby, mountain biking and to a lesser extent, high school! We have been The Pahu locals for the past 24 odd years and love this district and its surrounds, with the natural beauty of the mountain and the rolling hills close to our hearts.
I enjoy the rewards and challenges that dairy farming brings along with the doors and connections it opens. Currently a Director at Vetora, our local vet club. I am also the Chairman of the Roger's Charitable Trust Dairy Farm and Chairman of The Smaller Herds Association, a group of farmers that run events and discussion groups ‘for farmers, by farmers’. Previously I have been involved with school boards. My leisure time is spent at The Woolshed Theatre, either serving on the committee or taking part on stage in some of the many musicals we put on.
I recently worked for Pioneer Brand products for over six years, helping dairy farmers and maize growers achieve their on-farm goals with the use of maize/silage. This, along with the experience and knowledge of owning my own dairy farm has put me in good stead to manage your real estate negotiations.
I love farming, I love our community and I look forward to being able to service prospective clients in the rural property market.
