We live on a small farm close to the beautiful beaches and picturesque hinterland on the Sunshine Coast.
We breed Dexter cattle and milk the cows for our own use as milk, cheese and yoghurt etc. We also breed Miniature Goats and again when they are in milk use that for cheese.
Breeding heritage poultry is another of our interests.
As we have some natural bushland, native animals often visit us.
John is a senior science teacher and Cynthia has a home office business.
We welcome workaways to help with the caring of the animals, general farm duties, gardening, household chores. There is always jobs to do in the veggie garden.
Our aim is to be as self sufficient as possible although this is a 'work in progress'.
