The article features Ring Graeme, who is known in the Wellington branch of the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association as a portfolio man. He is a farmer, forester, mill owner and operator, quarry manager, and is a radiator repair business owner. He lives with his wife June at Te Hainui, in a 50 hectare property planted with radiata pines and supports 20 ewes and 15 cows. On another part of his property, he built a solar powered hut he leases out as a getaway cottage. He runs a mill down the road, to produce pallets and landscaping materials for himself and others. He also manages Petone Radiators which he bought in 1977. Now he is busy helping his wife and a local pottery group with establishing a kiln.
