We are on a hobby farm in Ashby Heights, NSW, 10 minutes from Maclean, 20 Minutes from Yamba. We are in our late 30's and have a 13 year old son living with us as well as a small dog and a cat. We have a 19 year old daughter who has left home and occasionally visits. The property is waterfront with an inground pool and just over 4 acres, we grow vegetables to eat and to sell at our roadside stall. Strictly non smoking.
