We get the best of both worlds here 

Joanna and Richard Greaves moved their family of six from Tauranga to Joanna's family farm in Opiki, Manawatū
Joanna and Richard 2

After living all over New Zealand from Hawke's Bay to Queenstown, the couple were looking for a place they could continue growing their careers in agribusiness while juggling and making the most of their busy farm life.

"Living in Manawatū we get the best of both worlds," says Joanna referring to their rural lifestyle in Manawatū district and fantastic career opportunities in Palmerston North. The couple say the education and schooling available in Palmerston North is some of the best they've come across in New Zealand, and an added bonus - Joanna can have all four children dropped at four different locations and be at her desk by 8:30am, easily.
