    Description

    My wife and I run a small organic farm near Ravenshoe on the Atherton Tablelands (2 hours from Cairns). We make hay and grow various fruit trees. We grow a vegetable garden, run free range chickens and have one dog - a Jack Russell that adores company.

    The farm itself is in the middle of set up stage and we hope to be fully operational in about 18 months with Fruit Trees, Dorper Sheep, Poultry, Beef and other, so as you can see we are rather busy and will require some help from time to time.
