About your host, Sally

Simon and Sally look forward to welcoming you to their farm. Simon and his family have farmed Mahaanui for nearly 70 years. Sally, when she is not helping Simon or hosting visitors from all around the world, works as a nurse at the local Gisborne hospital. You may meet one of Simon and Sally’s three children visiting their family home when you visit. Now young adults, they are working on farms around New Zealand and the world after studying agricultural and veterinary sciences at university.
