We've got 23 acres of mainly easy hill country grass with a bit of bush along the edge. 4O mins from the nearest shop. Altitude just under 600m.
I manage a farm 15 mins away, but chose to stay in our own house, rather than the station house.
I've had a gutful of farming by the weekend, so keep it simple here at home, 25 breeding ewes, a horse and the odd handreared motherless calf.
