We are a young family of 4: Jake and Aleth, Remi (6) and Lucy (3). Our main objective is to turn our 8 acres into a productive space based on permaculture principles to try and achieve a certain level of self sufficiency. We have 1 little dog, 20 sheep, meat chickens (seasonal only), laying chickens, 2 pigs (seasonal only), a hive of bees and fish in the dams. Jake also has a woodworking business (tree milling / furniture making).

Jake knows lots about wood and could teach you to recognise different trees and their characteristics/qualities, as well as uses for building/furniture making. Also a keen hunter, he can take you for walks to try and spot some wildlife. Aleth is French and speaks French to the kids, and also plays the violin and piano. We have both travelled in the past and have been well looked after by people on the way, so we are happy to return the favour!
We currently have lots of projects going on such as fencing, landscaping (big retaining wall), building a glasshouse out of recycled materials, preparing for a verandah extension. Winter is also a good time to prune trees on the property and light big bonefires. And there's always making the daily bread in our wood stove and cooking dinner with home grown meat and veggies, with kids providing round the clock entertainment!
