  • Description


    Our 15 acre lifestyle block is situated 15mins north of Napier in Hawkes Bay.

    Our family is made up of myself (35), my wife Hannah (30) and our two boys (4 & 2).

    Our property is planted in 2 acres of apricots and another2 acres of formal gardens and a large mixed house orchard.

    We also own 2 pigs, 5 chickens and a cat.

    The property used to be used as a BnB and wedding venue but we just keep it as a family home.

    However, there are lots of jobs that need doing everyday!
