For years, Farmers have offered shoppers access to the world’s best known beauty brands. Today, the chain boasts a lineup of products ranging from iconic brands, to New Zealand’s favourite local brands, to new niche discoveries.

And that’s exactly why Rachael Burkhardt is the perfect person for the job.
