Rural Bank Manager by week, Farmer by weekend! Tamara is a rural banker in Hawera and Chief Risk Officer of her own Dairy Farming business!

"I am lucky enough to have the best of both worlds - a job I look forward to during the week and an action packed weekend building our own business."

Tamara contracts milk on a 700 cow property in South Taranaki, while overseeing the operations of their farm near Hawera.

"I love the mix of professional and hands on work, both occupations complement each other and keep me busy!"

Your two worlds sound right on the money, a perfect mix of agriculture and business. Awesome work Tamara!
