Hi, we have just finished our build (took almost 18 mths!!!) finally in the new house and have 2.5 acres to decide what to do with!! Have 3 kids, 7, 4 & 2, a husband that works too many hours and me deciding what I can do with this land as some sort of home business/and become more self sufficient with veges, meat, eggs etc! Bought a chicken coop, yet to get any chickens tho! We have 1 dog and a 3 legged cat! :)

Welcome indeed. Before you decide on the type of chook you want, I recommend you attend the poultry nationals which are at Hamltons Boys High this year, open to the public 7 and 8 July. You'll be amazed by the different types available.

Welcome and congratulations on your new house - we too are not far from Hamilton!

The Tree Crops association is a great organisation to join and see what others have done with their land in terms of self-sufficiency and income...the Waikato Branch also has their marvellous annual sale coming up with lots of fruit trees available at extremely competitive prices!

Enjoy plotting and planning!

9.5 acres with 300-odd pines and lots of wobbly fences [:D]

The Waikato branch of the Tree Crops Association usually have their annual sale in the first weekend of July, in the upper carpark of the Rose Gardens entrance.

Blueberry, check with your local branch when they are having theirs, 'coz not all branches have sales at the same time: treecrops.org.nz/branch/index.html
