Thank You's & Links

Just some links and thank-you's to the people who have helped, entertained, mentored, inspired and sometimes even fed us on sustainable farming adventure so far!


  • Rod the Bee Man (RIP) who's incredible generosity, humour and passion for bees has enriched our lives no end. Now we know what they mean by the 'bees knees'! 
  • Mal Pruitt of Tuncurry Coach Tours who so kindly gave his advice and time to guide us in the best way to prepare our farm for bus tour groups - thanks Mal!
  • Dyers Crossing Landcare & Great Lakes Seedsavers (and all the great people in them) for sharing their wealth of knowledge, seeds, recipes and kindness
  • Our fellow farmers markets stallholders from Hand n Hoe Organic Macadamias to Marook Dairy, Petra's Gingerbread to Talawahl Nursery...and there'd be no farmers markets without organisers like the gorgeous Helen and Julie (Nabiac), Tim (Gloucester) and the fun red top-hat wearing smilers at Blackhead!
