Hello! was created by earthgirl

I've posted on here before, but it's official now that we are the owners of a 3 acre block in Tauwhare... been here for 6 weeks now (where did that time go?).

I've managed to draw up a plan for an orchard and we have yet to get any stock, but are thinking cattle at this stage and maybe a lamb for a really short time just to give the kids the experience (we're not fenced for sheep though yet). The last owners ran cattle.

I'm a newbie to this kind of thing, though have had an interest in organic/permaculture principles for a long time, so have read a bit there. Luckily dh was a farmer in a past life (though he says no experience with a block this small).

So far, I am loving the outlook, the peace and quiet, the birds... not so much the psychotic donkey a few blocks down, but luckily it is far enough to be amusing at this stage. I'm grateful that dh and I are finally in the position to be able to offer this lifestyle to our kids. Of course, we are both working full time to support it :rolleyes:

Anyway, looking forward to being on here a bit more...

An official welcome then earthgirl. Wish I could have offered it to my 6 in their earlier years too. But they are enjoying it as adults, and the Grandkids are flourishing. All the best.
