The thing I love about working from home in our family business is that I'm there for our boys, I can go to their sports days, be home for them after school or when they are sick. It's great that I can work around them. They are the reason we started this business, so I could earn an income but still be there for the boys.
As they have got older I've come across another bonus of having a family business, extra hands available when we need them! The boys have helped from time to time over the years, whether it's emptying a pallet of jars into boxes, labelling jars of honey or packets of pollen, or helping to pack honey. But as they are getting older and stronger (14 & 12) I'm thinking it won't be long until they are helping Martin in the field on a regular basis! Daniel helped Martin harvest the Ohui Manuka this season and was pleasantly surprised that he enjoyed it! And when they have a car license they might be keen to do the markets for us!
Here's some photos taken over the years of the boys helping:
