Kelly is one of the Co-Owners of Lavender Row. Before becoming a Lavender Farmer in 2017, she spent nearly 30 years working in the Insurance Industry doing various roles and working in different locations around New Zealand.
Kelly enjoys working with her hands and loves the practical side of working on the farm. Nothing gives her greater pleasure than seeing something she has thought of and putting it to good use on the farm.
She is thoroughly enjoying not only seeing the lavender flourish, but also establishing the farm’s veggie garden, fruit trees, berry bushes along with the beehives and one of her favourite things – the chickens!!!
Being self-sufficient as much as practical is one of Kelly’s ultimate goals and sharing this lifestyle with her partner Janice and their two beautiful mini schnauzers Georgie and Molly.
