I grew up on the family farm, our family originated here from Wales in 1864 and have been farming here for 6 generations, I left for travel and work over the years and came back 13 yrs ago and bought the horse trekking business from my Mum, since then i have just taken over management of the Bush lodges which have been running for 20yrs by my mother also. Its a family run business and I have a love of hospitality and people.
