Don Jackson - Tall Poppy
Immersed in the rural sector all my life, my early experience included work on sheep, beef, deer, arable and farm forestry properties, in NZ and around the world. Roles as farm forestry/environmental consultant as well as district manager for Livestock Improvement Corporation followed, and my rural real estate career began 12 years ago.
I hold a Certificate in Agriculture and a Diploma in Horticulture. I am a director/shareholder of a forestry investment company and involved in the Waikato Primary Industries Adverse Events Group, formed to support the rural community in disaster situations.
I own a lifestyle property between Katikati and Waihi, and my partner and I enjoy horse riding in our spare time.
