Gidday, my name is Penny Wilson.
I have been brought up with my Mum, Dad, my brother and sister on the family farm in the Wairoa district. I went to school at Iona College in Hawke’s Bay where I boarded for 6 years.
My hobbies include horse riding, both snow and water skiing and basically anything being active and outdoors. I am very passionate about farming and during the holidays and weekends have been spent working on farms and getting as much experience as possible.
When I finish up at Waipaoa I want to get a shepherding job for a couple of years then travel overseas to learn other farming practices before returning home and from there work my way up in the ranks to eventually farm management/ownership.
