falling off the earth

Picture 1

Well, you just might have been wondering if we had dropped off the face of the earth…it’s been more than 3 months since our last post!! It’s been so long that I had to check our blog just to see what I had written last time I posted. It’s interesting to see that I was talking a lot about the ways we were falling out of touch with the world – how this in many ways has been the whole point of our adventure. And then bang! We dropped right off the planet! Nothing like going deeply into a process! And I have to say, I can highly recommend it.

Newbie farmers

It has now been about 6 months since we chucked in our professional careers, and our comfortable beach-side lifestyle to move an hour inland and set up our lives on an operational organic farm, just outside a small rural village of barely 300 people. We officially arrived here on the 5th December last year. Continue Reading

recycling everything…

Hi friends,

Goodness gracious a LOT has been happening here at the farm. Its hard to know where to begin updating you all. Life has become so full, it feels like every moment of every day there is something fun to do… And always more jobs and projects waiting for your attention. Continue Reading

just rookies really

Farming is such a wonderful adventure. Full of challenge, learning and beauty. Not everyone’s cup of tea, no doubt, but accessible for most people. Sure, it’s physical… but there is great physical reward in being physically fit and strong and being outdoors rather than stuck in an office. Continue Reading

getting settled

Hi everyone,

It’s great to be here…and here is…Luffley’s Cafe, Murwillumbah. We are on our way to Byron for the evening to visit a friend, and we are taking this brief opportunity to re-connect with you all as we have absolutely no reception at the farm (and currently no computer either). It would be an understatement of mammoth proportions to say it has been a big couple of weeks. But we are pleased to report that the move is now complete, the cleaning at our old house finalised, and we are happily ensconced on the farm. Continue Reading

What a way to make a living…

Hello friends,

It feels like it has been a while between updates.

Right now, its 5.18am, and we are on the road to the farm. It’s raining heavily outside. The weather forecast predicts rain all week. We are praying for dry weather for next Wednesday – our big moving day! But rain, hail or shine, we will be moving in less than a week, and that’s both amazingly exciting and stunningly sobering!

A post about…



It’s Thursday night. Farming was yesterday and I have just finished a day in my Psychology practice. It’s 9pm. Rachel has gone off to meditate and I am here writing. I started to write last night when I came home and then the computer froze so I lost everything I had written. They were just notes, and somehow it felt okay. It caused me to reflect on what I might need or want to write instead. I didn’t come up with anything and fell asleep.
