  • Description

    Description

    30 acre farm in Whittlesea with cows, sheep, chickens, horses and fish.

    Organic gardening and aquaponics system which uses fish to grow vegetables.

    Owned by Lesley and Clive Denholm who are retired and building a farm that is very nearly self sufficient.

    A bit about us, we have 3 adult children and 7 grandchildren. Been married for 38 years, loving farm life after lots of years running businesses.

    We are members of Whittlesea Landcare Group and are keen to introduce permaculture principles on our property.

    The farm is exciting and a warm friendly environment. Private accommodation is new and clean. Quality bedding and good range of pillows.

    We love fresh wholesome home grown food.

    The farm backs onto a state forest and has regular visits from Kangaroos.

    We will ensure you enjoy and value your time on the farm and very much appreciate any help with our projects.
