Directors and Co-Founders James and Janene Draper are hands on owners based at the Farro head office at our Grey Lynn store. Janene is often found on the floor talking recipes and ingredients with our customers as her passion for cooking and sitting down at the table comes from having three now grown up sons. Meal time was always family time in the Draper house and her love for that has been the fuel for Farro from it’s inception. It’s a long way from optometry where Janene started .
James is the rudder to the Farro ship ensuring we don’t drive into dangerous waters and his role can sometimes be to let us all know we are possibly moving off track a little too much. His background in retail has given us vast knowledge as a business to help keep us on top.
Alongside James and Janene are a dedicated and ever growing core team, some of who have been with us since day one. Everyone plays a role in making Farro what it is and brings vast experience, knowledge and skills to keeping us an exciting and dynamic team.
