A Farmer's Daughter - Women of the Island

Jenine is a Cygnet local who has spent the last 30 years farming cattle, but when the dirty work is done, the overalls come off and she gets to work on her home which she has meticulously turned into a living museum full to overflowing of collectables.

CO-PRODUCERS: Ninna Millikan and Rebecca Thomson
DURATION: 5mins 36secs

Jenine is a farmer and has been for the past 30 years.  She works along-side her father running the 150 head of black Angus on a stud farm in Cygnet.  She spends her days getting dirty moving, feeding, drenching and calving cattle as well as driving tractors to cut hay or whatever physical work is required day to day around the farm. Once Jenine knocks off though, her world completely changes as she comes out of her dirty clothes and into her pristine home.
