    Short Property Description

    We are on a flat 50 acre family farm based 20 min. drive from Busselton.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    Our family purchased the farm early in 2017 as a small scale cropping farm. We are re-seeding and using chicken manure to fertilize, along with the pigs to turn the ground over and have taken excess pasture off as hay, until such time as we are able to increase and stabilize our stock numbers. Our priorities involve establishment of stock watering reticulation and fencing replacement/establishment. The property is situated on the original Sabina River flats and the soil is loam over clay, with sand across the river. There is very little top soil so we are seeking to establish top soil as part of our soil management strategy. Andy has a building and engineering back ground, so there is opportunity for impartation of years of experience to anyone who wants to learn. We generally seek good second hand machinery and recondition it for our own use. Lea has a medical background and is excellent with animal husbandry. We believe in nurturing people to see their own potential and better themselves.
