Hi, I'm Kevin. We have approx 14 acres with 10 Alpacas, one cat and a recently adopted Pukeko family. We have been on this property for nearly 17 years and have enjoyed every moment being here. We built our house and are the original property owners.We run the block as a hobby farm as we both work. I'm hoping that these forums will come in handy for any 'expert' advice I may need and hopefully I can help someone as well.

Thank you. Our 'paradise' is in Rolleston Christchurch. No strays, only other cats we see are from neighbouring blocks and even they seem to keep to their side of the fence most times. The other wild life we have are Plovers, magpies, pheasants, one or two pasing visits from a couple of paradise ducks and as mentioned before, our Puuk family. Will be glad to see the end of them, they have adopted a water trough that they bathe and poop in, not a good thing for stock. No need for chooks, know plenty of others who have eggs available. With my line of work (self employed electrician) I visit a few lsb's and usually come home with a few homegrown morsel. We grow a small amount of elephant garlic which we sell.
