Hi there. I'm Dee and I've just signed up as a new member.
My husband Dave and i have just under 10 acres in rural Greytown in the Wairarapa. Although i have had some farming experience, (about 20 years ago)what I knew then is mostly forgotten and therefore we anticipate needing a bit of help/advice from time to time. We currently run just two in calf angus/fresian cross heifers and two suffolk ewes, plus our lovely old Ross, a 12 year old grey moggy.
Dave works full time at a local vineyard and I run the bed and breakfast which we opened in March this year.
We would love to get to know other Wairarapa members. :)

Hi eelcat. Had a look at your website after your reply. See you're at the farmers market tomorrow. We're keen to meet new friends in the Wairarapa area and thought we would make ourselves known to you if we can make it to masterton tomrrow. Hope to see you there. dee.(agent orange) :)

Hi Dee and Dave, welcome to the site. I hope it's fine for the farmers' market today.

Tomorrow is the day I will stop procrastinating.

Did you get there? I'm there (almost) every Saturday - would love to meet you. Otherwise, give us a call and make a time to come over and meet us. Most of us don't bite!!!

Hi there Dee and Dave.
we are also in the Wairarapa over in Gladstone. There is a Small holders group that has a few members in your area. PM me if you want to know more details though Eelcat may have shared them as they are members too :)
