Frank and I have lived in Melbourne all our lives but we have decided for a tree change so we purchased a property in Willowmavin in December 2019. We are both in our early 50's. We are both working part-time with our Melbourne jobs and the rest of the time on the farm. We both work hard but try to find a work life balance which can be challenging. We are on 135 rolling acres with stunning views of Kilmore and Melbourne. We are situated 90 km from Melbourne, and 15 mins from Kilmore or Lancefield. We currently have 2 dorper sheep named Brucey and Bella, whom are very friendly and affectionate, 3 frizzle chickens named Vanilla, Chocolate and Caramel and 7 Indian runner ducks. We are also agisting some of our land and have 25 Angus cows. We started growing garlic immediately which was challenging as it was a huge learning curve. With every step of the process there are challenges but thanks to utube we are finding solutions. We have just harvested our garlic and getting our next garlic plots ready for this year’s planting. We have so many plans for this farm, but we just don’t have enough time to do it all ourselves. Some of the projects we dream of building are a Japanese onsen, a hobbit house and a pontoon. We also want to plant more trees on the property too. So many dreams, so little time 🙂

Beautiful 300 acre farm which we run wool sheep, alpaca, house cows, horses, chickens and bees. Although we've been farming all our lives, we've only been on this farm for a few years so we are still setting up. In addition to looking after the farm and animals we are growing vegetables and setting up an orchard. We love our farming lifestyle and are always looking to enjoy and improve our farm. Its great having people come and enjoy the farm with us and join in the lifestyle. We are keen to explore ideas such as care farming and social enterprises. We have a nice new self contained donger set up with kitchen, toilet, bathroom, aircon for you to stay in or your welcome to bring your own caravan etc.

The Western District coastline of Victoria is where we have our 30 acres, with 5 acres of native bush. We have visiting native animal such as koalas, kangaroos and plenty of birds. It is only a short drive to the seaside town of Portland. We use rainwater for everything and so planting with this in mind is very important. All that we are creating and building here is a wonderful learning and therapy experience. We would love you to join in with us as we try to create a place for all to enjoy even in our small way.
