  • Description


    We are a young, energetic, hard working yet laid back family of 4, Mum (Alicia) works off farm as a paramedic. Dad (Chris) works on the dairy farm full time, our daughter Mia who is nearly 5yrs old and our busy 2 year old boy Fletcher.
    Our kids are both bright, bubbly, mostly happy kids who are very inquisitive and busy.
    we have chickens and lots of cows!

    Our hobbies include everything outdoors! Camping, waterskiing, four-wheel driving, snow skiing, beach, fishing. However, with the workload on the farm we don't often get much opportunity to get away.
