Hi all Mike here just a quick introduction, moved last year from Ohakune ski town to the winter-less north, 'Kaipara Harbour', we moved a house onto our 5 acre block, built a garage/shed started a wooden signs business, now we are turning our little slice of heaven into a food forest wonderland, but taking baby steps 1/4 acre at a time :)
I will talk to you soon, hopefully get some advice and maybe pass some on too.

Fully stocked life, with one wife, 4 kids, 4 Steers, 11 Sheep, 3 Ducks one 5 acre permaculture block in progress & one business woodensigns.co.nz

Thanks, I did 20 years in traditional signage, now me and laura are looking to simply get a lifestyle rather than slogging it out, wooden signs looked to be the best option and fits in with our ethics, as i can just compost the shavings down and free compost no waste, we put cow poop in with the shavings thou for nitrogen.
