  • Description


    I live on a self-sufficient organic little farm in the beautiful Huon Valley. I run a small Trail riding business with my "well cared for horses" (five of them I have bred and educated with "Natural Horsemanship"). I have a big vegie-garden and keep lot's of animals: horses, ponies, milking goats, chooks, bees, rabbit and an adorable cat. I need help with everything that happens here on my farm.
    I am passionate about living on the land and living a healthy lifestyle. Happy to share anything that I have learned in the 30 years of living here.
