Hi everybody, we are live simply for the sake of the planet and our own sanity. That means we can spend time with our children and have a big garden and animals (2 horses, a few goats and cows for making yogurt, butter and cheese) on our piece of land hidden behind the trees in the Hokianga.
We live 4 hours drive north from Auckland, in a small house made from our own trees and recycled materials.
We like sharing our simple lifestyle and cooking fresh vegetables from the garden and home killed meat.
We like playing board games and playing music too.
