About Us

In 2013 my partner and I sold up our home in Auckland city and together we purchased a 13 acre lifestyle block in Kaiwaka, which is located just over 1 hour drive north of Auckland.  What was literally a blank canvas we have been slowing transforming the bare paddocks into our lifestyle dream. 


We have been busy over the last few years having built our home, garage & garden shed, rebuilding fences, planting a small orchard, gardening like crazy and farming a small flock of Arapawa sheep. It hasn't been smooth sailing there have been a lot of lessons along the way, but we're loving every minute and living the dream.
