Hello! We are Graeme and Tracey Reid. Graeme was born on this property - his grandfather originally owned 1400 acres, some of which was seconded by the Government after WW2 for use by returned soldiers, leaving him with 1000 acres. The property has been divided by family over the years, leaving Graeme with a slice of paradise which is used as a working organic orchard.
We enjoy sea fishing and trout fishing when time allows, camping, cards, great food and spending time with family and friends. We are keen to travel to a lot more overseas destinations and would also like to explore our own country more thoroughly.
We are WWOOF (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) hosts and have met many people from different countries and cultures. Our hosting feedback has been great and we have made firm friends with our WWOOFER’S and enjoy having them to stay.
The property has a variety of fruit trees and vegetables grown organically, plus cows for home kill meat. We also have some very friendly goats (which aren't for the dinner table).
We both believe strongly in looking after our environment for our future generations.
