Vanessa and I (Buck) have 16 acres in Matakana New Zealand close to a number of beautiful east coast beaches. We are currently building a permaculture block that is spray free and uses what nature provides to grow our fruit, vegetables, and livestock. We have a family that spend time when possible with us on the property. Three adult children and partners as well as eight grandchildren can make the propert busy on special occasions.

We are Kiwis who love our country, always happy to brag about beautiful off the grid places that NZ has to offer. Born and breed here we are hard working but live a laid back and happy go lucky lifestyle that people need to experience.
We are currently undergoing a number of building projects, fencing, garden building and maintenance. Weeding barrowing and other associated gardening work is always readily available. Builders, stonemasons, fencers and willing helpers always appreciated here.
