About Us


My name is Phil and together with my wife Jo and our gorgeous sons, we live on a 40 hectare (100 acre) hobby farm in the southern tablelands of New South Wales.

Our hobby farm provides us with a wonderful healthy lifestyle.

We have only been custodians of our small patch of earth for a couple of short years.  Not long after we bought the place, we travelled Australia, seeking knowledge and ideas about what we could do here.  We have been back for less than 18 months and are really starting to get organised to turn our dreams into reality.

But there is no point doing it all ourselves.  The Internet was created to share ideas, and we have been fortunate to learn so much online.  It is also the most effective way we can share our lessons / joys and pain that comes with living on a rural hobby farm with you.

We would love for you to interact with our website and tell us your story.  He hope you enjoy reading about our journey.
