On Country Life we hear about Sheep milking expansion, Sugar cane Northland, Thurvalley Brown Swiss cows, and Dali Olive estate where we meet Ross Vintiner…..He's carved an interesting career - from the maelstrom of politics alongside David Lange to the relative peace of an olive grove in Wairarapa.
