We live on a large farm at the bottom of the North Island. My husband runs the farm and I run a cafe on our farm which is very busy over the Summer months with tourists passing through to the beautiful Cape Palliser.
We have 3 children 15, 13 and 11
We love having backpackers join us and have had many from all over the world over the years!
