Michelle and her husband, Gary, were both born and raised in the Matamata-Piako District and, in the last two years, returned to the area, where they purchased their dairy farm, to make Matamata home again.
Michelle and Gary’s dairy farming career has included time on various properties in both the North and South Islands, as well as in North Gippsland, Victoria, Australia, where they thoroughly enjoyed their experiences that also highlighted what New Zealand (and the Matamata District, in particular) had to offer in terms of dairy farming, the great people and its lifestyle.
Michelle and Gary have three teenage children and, as a family, are thoroughly enjoying being back in Matamata, meeting both new and old friends. Michelle loves spending time with her family, friends and all of their animals. Her bright, bubbly, energetic attitude and genuine interest in people, along with the ability to think outside the square, will be of great value in her new career as a residential/lifestyle salesperson for PGG Wrightson Real Estate.
