At Dawnacres we have 2Ha of land with 750 square meters under plastic where we grow roses, lillies, lisianthis and sweet smelling stock. Our spare land is used to grow christmas trees, graze three cattle beasts and six sheep. Chris and Lorraine Burns live at Dawnacres and this is why we can often offer a 7 day floristry service.
Lorraine works off the property in Hastings during the day and is a competent florist who will usually make up your weekend orders. She looks forward to when she can retire from her day job and focus on wedding work.
Chris is a high school teacher at Havelock North High School specialising in teaching sciences and biology. He bought Dawnacres about 20 years ago as a place to graze ponies and today he maintains the flower crops and Christmas trees.
His skills at making up bouquets enables him to be a florist as required, but this is a job he usually calls Lorraine to do.
