South Canterbury-based environmental consultants Keri Johnston and Haidee McCabe have been chosen as the Supreme Winners at this year's Enterprising Rural Women Awards.
Ms Johnston and Ms McCabe are the principals of Irricon Resource Solutions.
They established their joint consultancy in 2010 and now employ nine staff from Motonau in North Canterbury to Duntroon in North Otago with more than 500 clients.
The business focuses on improving or maintaining the sustainability of natural resources, such as land, water and waste, and is also involved in irrigation and catchment management.
A key feature of the business is fitting work around family and farming life.
