    We are an active family. We don't watch much tv and we are not attached to our phones. We live on 400 acres with our home being in the centre of the farm. We all enjoy sports, cooking, reading, the beach,skiing,tennis, fishing,yoga, gardening,camping, art galleries ,the museum ,swimming ,music and watching movies. We also enjoy meeting new people and learning about different cultures. Our children and myself are learning french and we as a family would also love to learn and practice conversation with you if you speak french. We eat a healthy diet and don't eat junk food unless of course we are at a party! Our cows calve in September and October and our sheep lamb in March and April.
    We have lived in the United States for 5 years living in Colorado and Virginia. Simon is a Veterinarian and I (Narelle) run the farm. We have two children aged 6 and 10 who are wonderful, they do not have access to screens however we do enjoy family movie nights . They are outdoor and very creative,they enjoy the workaway experience as much as we do ,making new friends and learning from you. We are organised and we work hard. We also love to relax after all the work is done and enjoy our farm lifestyle whilst keeping a balance between work and play. We will warmly welcome you into our home, feed you well in our comfortable home.
    We are a respectful loving rainbow friendly household.
    We look forward to meeting you.
