Our Farm Sanctuary

In 2012, my hubby (Ric) and I purchased an amazing property in the Perth Hills on 150 glorious acres of pasture and natural bushland.  The property is called “Kookaburra” and it is magical.. full of tranquil dams brimming with bird-life, majestic gums and imposing jarrahs, rolling pasture and leaf-strewn woodlands.  Rabbits have made a veritable […]

It’s Not all About the Food. But OMG – the FOOD!

There is something about vegans and food. Specifically, vegans and their food. I know that that is somewhat of a sweeping generalisation, but I can confidently declare that most of the vegan crowd I hang with sure do have a thing about the glory of what they choose to eat. Years ago, as a child […]

The Chooks…

We have chooks.  To anybody unfamiliar with the Aussie vernacular, a chook is a chicken.  When we first moved to the Hills, we were intent on adopting several critters.  It was surprising to discover that we were not permitted to keep hoofed animals on our acre, especially considering there are properties in the immediate vicinity […]
