Farm Description

My aim is to run small numbers of quality animals on a sustainable, bio diverse property.
I allow no shooting,hunting or baiting on my place.
I am quite happy to share it with the kangaroos and emus.My dogs keep the pigs,foxes, dingoes and feral dogs away.
I run the place by myself with a quad bike and couple of stock horses.I use Low stress stock-handling methods and do not have working dogs,jiggers,whips or poly-pipe for stock-work.
