Short Property Description
We live in the Yarra Valley on 5 acres of bush, gardens & paddocks, in a house that carries the history of the area. We are aiming to establish a self-sufficient, sustainable farm with organic orchard, veggie patch & farm animals.
On our farm you can enjoy not only the company of our family (there are 4 of us), but also all the animals: dogs, a goat, a horse, parrots, peacocks, pheasants & chooks.
You can experience farm life while making jams, chopping wood, feeding animals, organising veggie patch, etc.
Accommodation for 2-3 people in our home (spare rooms) or caravan. Mixed diet.

Organic/Biological methods we use
We are trying to use our own soil if possible – scraps, chicken and horse manure, straw – I am still learning myself how to grow the best possible veggies and how to make our chicken happy. It is mostly fun:)
