Hi everyone,
Well been here a couple of weeks. Harvesting lots of tomatoes, beans and zucchini planted by the previous owners. We have moved here from Auckland, and bought a property with about an acre of Covenanted bush, an acre of paddock and an acre of garden and lawns. I'm doing a Permaculture certificate course next month. It's a steep learning curve!
Regards
Catherine

There is Te Mata near Raglan, TeMata down Hastings way, and Thames coast as well, so give us a clue as to which one it is?

Sorry just worked out how to see answers! Te Mata near Raglan. Have a lovely view of Mt Karioi from the house and a peep of the sea from the paddock. The neighbour who is a great organiser has organised another neighbour's Dexters (three cows and three calves) to graze the paddock. They are such beautiful animals. We are desperate for rain here though.

WE had the farm at the top end of Newton road, which is called Fallsview Farm, and of course if you are standing at the top of the bridal Veil falls, you are looking straight at our old farm, 870 acres, we had 2000 sheep, oveer 200 goats, mostly ferals, and some Angoras, and 400 angus cattle, plus also bred Appaloosa horses, and stood three stallions at the farm, had open days with over 50 Appaloosa on the farm, and in Ponds Road, there was a QH stud and they would also open up and between us there would be 200 or 300 people out to see the horses. But time goes on, and hubby got sick, so sold out and have brought 50 acres not far from the Morman Temple near Hamilton. When we went there, I think we were about the 3rd family to shift into the area, and all the rest seemed to be related to each other, now things, have changed, and its different, which road are you on? PM me if you like!
