  • Description


    We are family of 5. Me and my husband and 3 girls age 1.5, 3 and 6 years old. We love outdoors and work. But cant get on the top of house work and garden. We are milking our goat, having two dogs and one cat. We live in rural area surrounded by paddocks or crop and beautiful scenery. 45 min to Hanmer Springs, 2 hours to lake Sumner.

    We owned large agricultura bussines plus 3 farms. Grazing beef cattle and friesian bulls.

    Im fully involved with community volunteer projects like Toy Library, Hurunui Community commitee.
