  • Hi there im just checking if this good is still active i have moved to Upper Hutt and would love to connect to some local growers pls 

  • Just wondering if anyone has any sourdough starter they would like to share

  • Hello UH-oooobys !

    I have a bush cabin for rent, if anyone knows anyone who would like to live the lifestyle up on Moonshine Hill ! It is best suited for a single person, has a brilliant outlook over native bush, a small covered deck, harvests its own rainwater and is soon to be fitted with a chip heater for total winter cosiness. Comes with lots of garden space, free firewood, a big shared shed and a fully-appointed main house. Please put the word about - advertising on TradeMe and similar doesn't seem to be targeted enough to people who genuinely want 'lifestyle' living.

  • Ok, will call you over the weekend as Shaun is away till Friday night. Thanks :-)
  • Do we ever!! Although my little ones do like watching them out the window.... hmm, give me a call when you're free!
  • HI guys anyone here got a rabbit problem? Have a keen hubby with the appropriate gun and license that wants to remove some pests. Stop the cute little fluffies destroying your pasture and making holes for your pony or cattle to step in and break a leg. Our kids pet bunnies are off the menu.
