    Description

    Permaculture small farm on 1 acre [0.4Ha]. Tiny house and converted stables. Ian and I are 50-something years old with adult children who live nearby. We are sharing with a permanent tenant. We eat from our garden and other local food every day. 9 chickens and 2 dogs. Lots of birds and kangaroos. We are in an emerging eco-neighbourhood on the edge of the vibrant town of Castlemaine, and 5km from train station with easy access to Melbourne. Lots of great walks and cycle rides. Great network of earthy people in the area.
