Winter Activities 2021
- The ewes are in lamb and have been moved to some of the the best pastures. They were recently scanned to get an estimate of how many lambs the farm will soon welcome.
- Firewood has been cut by the family and staff – helped by the new wood splitter that makes the process a lot easier.
- Three new chickens have recently been introduced to the farm – and the family is ever vigilant to ensure the pesky foxes don’t make an unwanted appearance.
- Our donkeys – Nancy and Nelly – have been exploring the property with the family taking them for long walks. Farmstay guests and can feed them as they are close by the accommodation.
- Piles of dead trees and wood pushed together through the year and known as ‘stacks’ will be lit throughout the winter months. Whilst providing wonderful heat and spectacles, such fires are preventive measures for the summer months so that fuel is removed from the property in a controlled fashion.
- The farmstay is a perfect spot for nights by the fire (marshmallows and wine for the adults mandatory) and long walks through the garden, near the creek and around the shearing shed. Albeit we have been impacted by COVID restrictions of late and cannot wait to welcome more of our Sydney friends and family back out to the property soon.
- Our beautiful Angus cows have recently given birth to calves. All are happy and healthy.
- This year’s garlic crop is in the ground (planted a little late) and will soon be accompanied by onions, peas, kale and lettuce. Potatoes will also be planted to grow out of the cold, crisp months.
