A summary

We are ‘professional peasants’ with real ‘day jobs’ while living on a small farm, growing vegies ( in the ground and in an aquaponics system), herbs, ducks, poultry, rabbits, sheep and fish in the swimming pool for family consumption!  We also support native plants and local wildlife. Our goal is to live on our 10 acre property 30 minutes from the Perth CBD, Western Australia as sustainably as possible. We also do our best to provide an environment for local wildlife. We like to share our experiences for the sake of those wanting to do similar with some handy hints and also avoid some of the  inevitable pitfalls.  Apart from this website, we also contribute to the following forums:
