Janine Aish, Partnerships Manager - Northland, Auckland and Waikato Regions

Janine is Waikato born and bred, and although she didn’t grow up on a farm she has spent a lot of her childhood on family farms.

She started in print media firstly working for the NZ Herald and from there went to the Waikato Times until she left to have her first son. After a few years working in other industries, she returned to the media world but this time into the agricultural scene – and loved it.

Janine has been in agri-media most of her career since. She was always very impressed with Dairy Exporter and Country-Wide magazines – and says it is such a privilege to now be working for the company that publishes them..

She lives just outside Cambridge on some acres and now has two grown sons – one in IT/Media and one a builder so always lots of excuses to get them helping her! Life is busy with extended family, gardens and a continual list of projects that never seems to end – just how she likes life to be!’
