    Laura Morrison

    Laura Morrison

    Laura Morrison farms with her husband Rich in the beautiful Rangitikei region, with her two small boys on their sheep and beef farm with a twist.

    The Morrison’s run “The Gullies”, and alongside their ethical livestock genetics, they also invite artists to share their landscape at the Cottage each year.

    Laura opens up and shares with us her biggest life moments alongside the challenges and opportunities for Aotearoa’s primary industries.

    Today’s shout out is to the “Mother’s Matter” campaign, whose mission is for better health and wellbeing outcomes for mothers in Aotearoa. 

    Just a trigger warning, in this podcast episode we will be discussing baby loss, as Laura very graciously shares her story. She shares the loss of her baby and her path dealing with that loss.

    Today we’re speaking with Fiona Gower, immediate past president of Rural Women New Zealand and community champion. 

    We talk with Fiona about the importance of setting your own path, power of communities and connection, and the awesome opportunities she’s had through RWNZ.

    Today’s Shout Out goes to the wonderful Rural Support Trust, who are the fence at the top of the cliff rather than the ambulance at the bottom, 

    Rural Support Trusts have local, rural people who know from experience that pressures can mount up. Their networks and training can help with all kinds of situations, and help you get through your current challenges.

    Today on the podcast, Sarah Reed of The Grumpy Merino (TGM) joins us to have a chat! 

    Sarah, her husband Jono and their three children live on the Grampians in Culverden, North Canterbury. The Grumpy Merino (TGM) is driven by a desire to better utilise merino wool, transforming it into high-quality yarn and blankets. The wool can be traced every step of the way, eventually being crafted into a natural, high-quality, New Zealand-made product. 

    Sarah has an amazing candid chat about her business journey, the biggest lessons and tips she has learnt along the way, as well as the incredible connections she has made with other rural women business owners.

    Black Heels and Tractor Wheels is back! Season 4 is kicking off with a bang, with the first episode featuring the lovely Meredith Carpenter. 


    Meredith is behind Ruanui Station products, which are 100% New Zealand made from start to finish. The sheep are farmed and shorn at Ruanui Station near Taihape, just as they have been for three generations, which are then woven into luxuriously soft blankets.


    Meredith has a great chat with us about her isolated upbringing in Taihape, her experience starting her own business and her top tips for anyone else who may be thinking of doing the same thing!
