Black Heels and Tractor Wheels with Dianne Downey – Podcast Presented by Rural Women New Zealand

The Black Heels and Tractor Wheels is a Podcast by Emma and Claire with iheartradio, who share stories from a range of women around New Zealand. Emma and Claire join a whole raft of incredible New Zealand women to discuss topics ranging from starting your own business, navigating career and university changes, building confidence, and getting back to work with young children.

In this podcast, they speak to Dianne Downey, one half of the duo that makes up the Limery. Dianne is based in Wairoa with her husband Paul, where they create 100% pure New Zealand citrus products and juices.

As the business has grown, Dianne and Paul have helped grow their community too. They developed Te Rau Haumako, an on-site programme which offers industry experience to local rangitahi. The Limery also collaborates and encourages smaller growers, something that is very important to Dianne and Paul.

Dianne chats to Emma and Claire about why the Limery’s Business model works, her advice for those looking to run their own business, and how herself and Paul have built up the Limery to where it is now.
