Kristy Roa


Kia Ora, my name is Kristy Roa. I come from Hamilton, where I live with my Mum, Dad, older brother and older sister. I attended St Peter’s in Cambridge, spending my three senior years as a boarder.

Hobbies include football, lacrosse, horse riding, fishing and playing my Ukulele.

Although I don’t have a farming background, I have always had a passion for the outdoors and working with animals – so I gravitated towards farming.

When I leave Waipaoa, I hope to stay in Gisborne, finding a shepherding job with plenty of dog and horse work. Eventually, I would like to move up the farming ranks to become a manager, and into farm ownership.
