Julia Young was raised in Marlborough. After working on several farms located around New Zealand, she and husband Andrew share milked on a Dairy farm in Canvastown on the Bryant property.
As their two girls got older, the couple sort a lifestyle change to spend more time with their children. They sold their cows and shifted to a lifestyle block at Upper Moutere for a few years selling raw milk from their gate.
Now days Julia is Store Manager at the new PGG Wrightson/Fruitfed supplies, Richmond complex in Estuary Place off lower Queen Street. She carries out the day to day running of the Store, Customer Service, Stock Control and looks after a team of five who work alongside her.
“Importantly,” she says with a lilt of humour in her voice, “making sure stock supplies are ordered and delivered to clients.”
Julia says, “the new store has safer access for both clients and staff, its warmer and more welcoming.” The shift from the old store was well executed, keeping both stores open until the shift was completed.
