  • Description


    We lived on a lifestyle block,slowly to turn it into an orchard, once its done we are hoping to donate most of the food back to the community or people who needs the most but we are in the very early stage of the process.

    My partner is originally from Hong Kong and I'm a born and bred Waikato Kiwi, we have three children who are 10, 8 and 5 years old.

    We try to eat as clean and healthy as possible as our kids had food allergies and intolerances. We are also eco friendly family, our sewage system is a natural process system therefore we can`t use any strong products/chemicals.
