We are a household of three guys and soon to be five people living on a 2 acre block in Healesville in the Yarra Valley, we are growing organic fruit and vegetables trying to develop and grow the garden to produce as much as possible to live off and eventually sell. We have two sheep and soon will be getting chooks and will be constructing tiny houses on on the property for renting. We are an exuberant trio aged 24, 28 and 48, with mixed skills and interests who love to have a laugh.
