    Description

    We are setting up a new hobby farm in Ashby, NSW, 10 minutes from Maclean, 20 Minutes from Yamba. We are in our 30's and have a 12 year old son living with us as well as a small dog and a cat. The property is waterfront and just over 4 acres, we want to grow vegetables to eat and eventually to sell.
