ABOUT US

We LOVE to bring you pretties that are fun, affordable and on trend! This business is built from a love of fashion and all things funky.
Over the Ditch is 100% New Zealand owned and operated by the Batterson Family. Our lives and our family can be a bit crazy- just the way we love it!

I'm Catherine - the crazy lady behind Over the Ditch and Queen of the Batterson Family.  My wonderful King is Matt and we have two delightful (and challenging...) children, Prince Lachie and Princess Eliza.  
After making our move home to NZ in 2015, Over The Ditch was born!  Hanmer Springs has been our home ever since and we've loved seeing Over The Ditch evolve and expand over time.  
If you're reading this, you're most likely about to try some of our beautiful pretties for the first time or you're an OTD addict!  Either way, thank you so much!  We can't wait to hear what you think and (hopefully!) see you back again soon.
xx Catherine
