Sharleen Temara – Berry Harvest Manager

My main duties include assisting in berry harvest, the general maintenance of our berry crops, managing, supervising and training staff. I’m also known to give Maori lesson’s out in the field.

I’ve worked at Maungatapere Berries for the past year and it’s a pleasure to work on a beautiful orchard, with a unique bunch of local staff, mixed with a sprinkle of backpackers from all walks of life and nationalities.

I previously worked as an arborist and worked up North because of my Hoa Rangatira.

I’m a proud Tuhoe no te wharua o Ruatoki.
