Oh How Wonderful!! Ramarama is beautiful and not far from us at all. There are a few of us who have recently moved to this area who meet up once a month for coffee and a natter, so let me know when you're out this way and I"m sure the other girls would love to meet you!
Are you going to do the LIfestyle Block thing?
We only have a hectare, but are using it rather intensly with fruit trees, chooks and veg gardens, the others use their land differently with different stock etc -so we're a varied wee group
My name is Tara, and I'm the one out in Bombay. It's a bit of a drive from your direction, as we're basically out in Mangatawhiri (around the corner from the old castle that used to sell the best icecream in the whole world)
I'm sure that there are organic dairies nearer you, around the Whitford area - it might pay to look there rather than the 45 minute drive out in this direction for milk.
Let me know if you want directions etc though, or I could meet you down there when I go to get milk, and can take you through the proceedure
