The orchard we have is safe but we keep stock off and heavy machinery off it.
The trees do well and so does the grass so we have to cut it weekly.

Is everyone Who is moving away from the Earthquakes. Doing into Lifestyle Blocks. Amazing amount of People in Christchurch on here who have.
Good luck Negodil I know the feeling working Full time.
We have two other couples who we share the house. Its better this way since we share the work load.

Hi we are in downs road. Hubby wants to put sheep and hopefully a cow.
He just wants it for home kill. Me I'm just want my vege orchard and chickens.
To start with he thinks he might just graze it or hay it till we get more settled.
Title came through today so as of tomorrow it's ours.
No turning back now. Here we cone ready or not and trust me we are so not ready.
Big learning curve coming our way. If we last longer than the typical two years ill be happy.

We moved from Kaiapoi to West Eyreton ... but our house was not red zoned in Kaiapoi ... we were sitting in a bubble of green land and decided it was the best time to sell before everyone around us was demolished! So yes, it was the earthquakes, but boy did we get a great price for our house!
