I'm a mother of 2 grown up girls who enjoys retired life on my biodynamic farm. I'm an environmentalist, and a member of local Landcare, land for wildlife, the biodynamic gardener's association, and society for rare domestic breeds. I also support the neighbouring Freshwater Creek Steiner School. Animals on my farm include horses, cows, ducks, chooks and dogs. We grow a lot of our own food, vegetables, fruit, eggs and meat. I love country life and love to share this peaceful environment with my guests.
