    We are a Dutch-South African family with three kids working towards a self sustainable lifestyle. Two year ago we changed our lifestyle from city to farm life. My husband is active with community development and handymen work on our farm. I do homeschooling, take care of my kids (9,6,4), grow vegetables and take care of the other animals. We are Christians.

    We have goats, chicken and pigs, all free range. We also have a vegetable garden.

    We live on a 9,8 hectare land with a stream and forest down hill. We have a nice view down the valley.

    We are 25 min from a beautiful beach and half an hour from Port Elizabeth.
