    Short Property Description

    We are just starting out on a small farm (55 acres) and have Goats (and a Mareema puppy as their herd dog, Pigs, Chooks, Ducks, Budgies, Doves and Peach Faces, a house cat and a house dog :0) We are hoping to build a dam near the house for yabbying, and possibly replanting grapes, that used to grow here, many years ago. We are planning to set up a cottage type Air B&B near the house and we have a sleep out in the large shed for accommodation that sleeps a couple and one other if required. We have quite a large house paddock with gardens and a swimming pool and there is a vegetable garden that I hope to start straw bale planting in. I have plans to build a greenhouse and am hoping to trial an American product that uses solar panel electricity to run a humidifier/ fan to keep the greenhouse at a modest temperature no matter what it is outside.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    We  hope to use the goats to regenerate the property with the end outcome producing organic, grass fed Boer Goats for breeding to sell to farmers wanting to mix Rangeland Goats with Boer Goats to provide meat for ourselves and the local market, and possibly organic produce in the new greenhouse and the strawbale garden. I would like to grow grapevines along the driveway and so far have one row in (53 plants) with two more to go. Roma was the first place in QLD to grow wine grapes!
