No - it's not a blog double up..... Holly is a proud mother to this little chap born yesterday. He is very white and has very cute ears!!! We do not name any of the boys that will become steers.
It is really lovely to have a few calves born around the same time. You can sit and watch them frolick and play tag with each other. The mothers get plenty of free time as other members of the herd, including the steers, have turns at watching the nursery.
Livewell Farm is a 40 acre property situated in the beautiful rolling hills fifty kilometres west of Brisbane. We wanted to create a space where our family and others could experience the wonder of nature and learn to appreciate and be grateful for its bounty and beauty.
Our farm produces many things and we embrace biodiversity. We enjoy beautiful tasty pork from our rare breed Berkshire pigs and beef from our miniature Zebu cattle. Whilst, what was the front yard of the old farm has been transformed into a permaculture inspired vegetable garden with vegetable mandalas and a Chicken dome, interspersed with fruit trees.
Please enjoy reading our entries, we hope that one day we will see some of you at the farm in person – or at least drop us a line by e-mail.
