Wanaka resident Madge Snow ran a high-country Central Otago station with her husband Max for 30 years. She is now devoting her time to gardening up a storm – irises are her specialty – and writing.

Madge has written about her life in Snow on the Lindis: My Life at Morvern Hills Station.

Kim Hill starts the conversation by complimenting her on the now-unusual name of 'Madge'.
