Whether they’re running thriving businesses from kitchen tables across the country or getting out of bed at the crack of dawn to muster stock across the hills – women’s lives and roles in rural New Zealand are rich and varied.
Shepherdess is a new quarterly magazine that tells the stories of women in our agrifood sector, and their lives in rural New Zealand. Telling people’s stories reduces isolation, stimulates ideas and thinking, and fosters connections within the agricultural sector and between rural communities.
The first edition of Shepherdess will be hot off the press, having been started in Manawatū, so come along for an evening dessert and a drink at Mustard Folk Studio to celebrate the launch.
