  • Description


    We live on a working Dairy Farm, we are currently Share milking 550 cows at peak through a herringbone shed. We are a family of 3, with a 2 year old daughter, with a two friendly dogs and a tail-less cat. We are only 4km to central Keri keri and near the Keri Keri airport. We try to live sustainably, try not to buy meat (Matt Hunts), so we generally eat wild meat which we butcher ourselves, we are trying to build up our garden to provide for us at the moment (work in progress).
