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.

A Happy Birthday for Hope

For 12 months Hope has been working hard with her school work trying to get to the 100 points she needed from us before she was able to buy her first sheep. With 97 points on the board, Hope was rewarded on her birthday with 4 merino ewes from Uncle Andrew. She is a very happy 10 year old and we are proud that she worked so hard for so long to earn them.

Ruby Rubarb, Celery, Charlotte and Lizzy were all named and started to be spoilt here immediately on arrival. All of them are soon to lamb - some apparently having a history of twins! How exciting!
