  • Beschreibung


    We live on 15 acres in the hills overlooking the Huon River. The property features many practical examples of permaculture design including food forests and intensive gardens. Our home is a solar passive with a large vegetable garden, mixed fruit orchard, hazelnut orchard and goats. I am passionate about regenerative agriculture and am working towards setting up a small scale demonstration farm to share with others. We are also building tiny houses on trailers to diversify our income. Living on a property that is beautiful and harmonious is important to us, especially when it is both our workplace and our home.

    The Huon River is only a km away. It is a great river for swimming, kayaking and rowing. There are lovely bushwalks around us. There are buses to Hobart and to the south very close by.

We buy jersey heifers in spring to graze ahead of the chickens, then sell them as future house cows.
Our sheep are on holiday with the children at the moment
We had a pastured egg business where the hens live in paddocks by day, and safely in mobile houses at night. We just have a few now but they are still in the paddocks
Hannah and Mary-Lou control weeds on the farm
Bush walks a short bus or car ride away
The Huon River is only 1 km from the farm. We enjoy kayaking, rowing, swimming and sailing there.
