A little about our family: I’m Olivier (Olly) I was born in Belgium English mother and Belgian Father and from the age of 10 grew up in the UK until I met my Wife (Shelley - Australian) and moved to Australia. Prior to moving to Australia we both worked in the city of London. Olly worked in Aviation Reinsurance and Shelley in a consultancy firm. We have both travelled extensively and lived and worked for short periods of time in a number of different countries. Now Olly mainly works on the farm whilst Shelley works part time and is studying part time. This year Olly has been working on a government / Private forestry funded scheme "Caring for your Country" (improving native forests on small farms - weed control and reset thinning).

Wildlife on our property:- Our property is surrounded by natural woodland (three sides of state forest approximately 2.6klm and 1klm boundary with an uninhabited and uncleared property) and the nearest house being 3klm as the crow flies, nature is abundant.
