Sonita Chandar has always had a passion for writing and has been working in journalism on and off since I was in high school and held general reporting roles at several newspapers. She joined the Stuff Agrimedia team in 2014 as a farming reporter, then took on the role as editor of NZ Dairy Farmer, now Dairy Farmer at GlobalHQ. Prior to that, she and her husband owned a dairy farm near Dannevirke. She enjoys the diversity of my role – every farm and farmer is different and every farmer has a story to tell – and feels privileged to tell their stories and to work with the best team in the industry.
