    Short Property Description

    Small picturesque farm of 15 acres on rich river flats surrounded by forests & mountains. The Snowy National Park is to the west, the Errinundra NP to the east while the Brodribb wilderness feeds the river in between at Goongerah, a small settlement of about 35 people.
    This eco-friendly, mixed farm is shared by chooks, geese, milking goats, Clydesdales, wildlife, a dog, guinea pigs and an infamous environmentalist.

    The fully-netted orchard, booming vegie/flower/herb garden and animals provide most food needs, with food preserving a major part of autumn work. Self-sufficient in fruit, veg, milk, eggs (still working on chocolate).

    Solar panels power the slab-log home. A wood stove provides heating, hot water and meals. Comfy room for guests.
    I have written for ‘Earth Garden’ magazine for about 30 years so visitors can see many of these practical ideas in action.

    Vegetarian tucker. No smoking inside. Own transport helpful as I’m 70 kms from Orbost and the nearest bus stop. (Mail – Locked Bag 3, Orbost 3888).

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    Organic, low-impact, wildlife friendly, common sense methods used. No fancy names.
