We are looking forward to our 8th Bluesfest working with Di from Greenfest Solutions to reduce, reuse and recover as much as possible at the 30th Bluesfest.
This year we are working with Bangalow Sign Co as well to improve our recovery efforts via some great signage to encourage people to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Our chickens are laying away to help feed the hard working Greenfest team over the next week. We are also providing ham, bacon, sauages and other produce from our farm. It’s a full circle with the compost we make from Read More
Piglets have finally arrived. Definitely not a phantom pregnancy Farm Hand Bandhu. It has seemed like she has been pregnant and ready to drop for most of this year. But they are finally here. Our best guess is that this is her a dozen litters or approximately 100 piglets. Heritage breeds longevity and productivity too it seems.
As her name implies she is not a purebred Large Black. She’s got a good bit of Berkshire in her too which seems to produce both black and spotted pigs. Her sister Black Steiner is still going strong too. Alison named then the Steiner Sisters for their incredible ability to do their own Read More
Pleased with this timing. Thanks BOM for such an accurate forecast. Alison put out 200 kgs of Oats (Thanks Farmer Jay) in our front paddocks on Tuesday. I followed up with a low and slow mulch and mow on our Toro. We let the pigs back out and yesterday we got some nice rain with more coming today. Perfect pasture power up recipe with the help of the pigs.
Congratulations to our dear friend Jody Vassallo on the success of her Farmer Cookbook Community Project. You can get a sneak peek at our feature in the Farmer Cookbook and if you like how it looks and how the food smells you can buy it from our shop.

I hope you get to watch this before I have to take it down. In case I do here’s a short version of how this footage came about. Moonshine Coffee. Tesla. Drone. Can I come over in five minutes?
Fortunately, Alison moves quickly and got the rugs off the horses. As you can see they were a bit stirred up by the giant flying mosquito.
Daniel Z Lowe was not stirred up and the noise did not seem to scare the Pink Flamingo.
Winter is a wonderful time to be off the grid back at Porter Lake. Here’s a video our daughter Morley and her mate Sol made in February when they were in Restoule helping out the Learns at Nogo Farms. As you can see it wasn’t all hard work.
Made Pho with Barber Benny last night. Used this as a guideline.
Already had premade pork stock from our pig heads.
Prepare the onions and ginger.
Char the onions and ginger.
Toast the spices.
Combine the broth ingredients.
Cover and simmer the broth.
Freeze the beef for 15 minutes.
Slice the beef into thin slices.
Cook the rice noodles.
The one nice thing about being your own client in the branding and marketing world is that you don’t have to be precious about protocol. Well at least that’s how we roll.
Have a look at the new look that Jules Goodwin has on a roll for us.
Serendipitously this new look has a familiar look to it.
