...about our move from Scotland to Northland - it's a nice happy wee romp with lots of bits and bobs about our wee farm life.

I'm obviously totally biased, but I think it's ace.

He has a website lloydjerome.com/
and you can download a bit of the book to see if it's something you might like.

Done.

I read a lot of UK based farmlet books when contemplating the full time move to NZ and couldn't find anything here similar.

i think you are onto a winner there. I really do for people like us.

Congrats and I look forward to receiving my copy.

i also like the website. ! Awesome. Looks like it belongs to a real person.

Finished it.

And I am pleased to say I really enjoyed it. Excellent reading for those considering the move or just have. I could relate to your experiences in part despite not coming directly from the UK.

I have sent Lloyd a sep email.

Wow, what a great thing to do!
We'll have a look, especially as we're the process of serious research /collecting documents for making the move ourselves. We're coming over soon (well in a few months) for a holiday/recce but more of that at another time!

It's interesting to know what kind of experiences people have had, so it's great he took the time to share.
