A Waikato woman has won Rural Women New Zealand's supreme enterprise award.

Tineke Verkade runs a homeopathic farm business, which supplies more than 200 organic-certified products to farmers.

She has also written two books on homeopathy for dairy and alpaca farmers, and employs eight part-time people.

The supreme enterprise award was presented at a special ceremony at the Rural Women New Zealand national conference in Oamaru.

It recognises an outstanding rural businesswoman running her own enterprise and celebrates the success of all rural women entrepreneurs.
