We are a small family based 1 hour drive from Sydney cbd in Richmond NSW.
We live on a 150 acre farm, where we have polo horses as well as cattle.
Our location is a 5 minute walk into the town of Richmond, where there is farmers markets on every Saturday + caffe's, shops and boutiques.
We are also a 30 minute drive from the iconic blue mountains,
My husband is a builder and plays polo on the weekends and I own a designer fashion boutique in town.
So we both work full time, but have flexibility.
Our daughter is 15 months old + we have a family dog (who was the first child) he is a small jack russle and is 9 years old.
We also have girls that work for us, that help look after the horses, so there is an opportunity to make new friends with like minded people.
