Spring is in the air

Hen Egg 101g.DSCN0711All the garden has been full of blossom for a few weeks now.

The old pear tree at the front of the house was loaded, we’ll see how it fairs with the possums.

The chickens are making an effort as well, with one hen producing an egg weighing 101g.

Dark Mofo

P1060856The slow combustion heater was sent away for refurbishment recently.

It happened over the Dark Mofo Festival, which, incidentaly, was a wonderfull three day/night event, with live music, street theatre & of course local food & wine.

In the meantime we filled in the space with a token promotion of the festival, until the return of the unit.

Gabion Penthouse

"The Gabion Penthouse"

“The Gabion Penthouse”

We finally completed the Penthouse at the end of June 2013.

 

 

 

After the two sows had dug up the rocks in the paddock, we spent a month, part time, building it. Back breaking, to say the least.

Current tenants are rather enjoying the concept!

The Penthouse currently houses twelve young Wessex Saddlebacks.

New website launched

We are very excited to launch our new website.
