    Description

    We are a young school age family of 7 living in the beautiful King Valley approx 50kms from Wangaratta. We live on a property nestled into the floors of the King Valley with amazing views of the Black Range and Mount Buffalo. We have an orchard, vegetable gardens and native garden as well as a few horses, alpacas and chickens.
    Our home is a straw bale, solar passive design - there is a pool to cool off in the summer. We are 4kms from the small township of Whitfield.
