We are a young family of 4 Lawrence, Leoni & two kids. We have a small farm near the beautiful town of Esperance (with the most beautiful beaches in the Southern Hemisphere). Our farm is only 7km from the ocean and Esperance is a 15-minute drive away. We can pick you up in Esperance and when time we also like to show you the beautiful scenery here or you can explore it yourself on one of our bikes. With Leoni being originally from the Netherlands we always have several spare bikes for visitors to use. On our farm we run cattle, dairy goats and some pigs, we also have a few horses and sheep, some chickens and a dog. We will grow some crop and hay for our cows. We also grow some of our own vegetables and herbs and have several fruit trees. In the next … years we would like to become self-sufficient.
Our cattle and pigs are raised organically, we are aiming to farm in a more biodynamic way in the future but as we have recently shifted farms are still in the process of setting up infrastructure on this farm.

We are always happy to share our knowledge, skills and and opinion on many worldly and local subjects. Culturally you get a taste of Lawrence being a fairdinkum Ozzie and Leoni a Dutchie gone Ozzie.
