My husband Peter and I live on a hobby farm called Buttercuplodge nestled above the beautiful Barwite valley. We virtually live off the land and enjoy growing our organic fruit and vegies, which we share with guests, family and friends. I breed my own chooks which are free range, guests are welcome to collect eggs and cook them up for brekky. I hand rear orphan lambs and calves which the guests can bottle feed. We have the company of 2 foxie/russell dogs, mum and her pup who love playing fetch the ball with the guests. Waking up every morning and feeding my hungry animals is not a chore, its a real pleasure. I love caring for my animals, working on the farm and the great enjoyment showing everyone around the farm.
