In late 2012 we bought a 10 acre farm in Lauriston, a bit over an hours drive north west of Melbourne.
We have always been interested in food, designing, making, and, in general, just trying new things.
As the farm is located close enough to Melbourne to allow us to travel back as required, we decided that we wanted to move there full-time to give us more time to explore these interests whilst at the same time trying to become a part of the local community and hopefully add a little more meaning and happiness to our daily lives.
So over the last few years we have tried our hand at a whole range of new things... from home schooling and establishing bee hives, through to building vegetable gardens, converting farm buildings and raising and slaughtering our own animals for meat.
We moved to the farm with very little knowledge of farming, gardening or building, but with a lot of hard work and a little help and advice from our friends we have made in the local community, we have come a long way. We feel very fortunate to live on this beautiful little farm, for the experiences that we have had and for what we have learned. Our way of acknowledging this gratitude is by opening our farm to others.
The farm has now become a place to share our interests, a place to share the artistry and skills of the local makers in the area, and a place to connect.
A Plot in Common.
