The Haswells were keen to give farming a go and turned what had been a small working farm — first with dairy cows and then sheep — into a lifestyle block.

“We’ve ended up leasing out 50 acres to a local grower, and the rest of the space we use to play around with. We’ve got a couple of cows, some chooks and three pigs, and soon we’ll add
