Hi everyone I'm a mum of 8 kids, I grew up on the Hakari farm and my husband grew up on the Hutiwai farm. We love meeting people and I'm really enjoying hosting, especially now that our children are leaving the nest!
My husband and I are down to earth and love the unique environment around us, our family won an environment Award from the Taranaki Region Council for the planting of the Hutiwai stream for the conservation of the Whitebait and we work closely with the Taranaki Kiwi Trust and their breeding program. Family and relationships are important to us.
We look forward to meeting you soon!!
