We've just taken the plunge, and moved from a suburban based house in a large city north of Hamilton (can't say which one), to the foothills of Mt Pirongia. I must say so far, it's been the best move we've ever made. We have .77 hectares. 1/2 in grazing, 1/4 in orchard, and the rest for home and grounds. You can't wipe the smile off our faces. One would hope this honeymoon period goes on for some years to come...... Anyway, look forward to conversing with many of you over various lsb issues that crop up.
