Spring certainly seems to have arrived early here at Livewell. Not only have not only seen our first 6 foot Brown snake of the year but our ewes started lambing last week. We had a single ewe born on Wednesday that Hope called Flossy. On Saturday we had our first set of twins - a little wether and a ewe. They are all doing well though the mums look a whole lot slimer! We are not expecting the next births until late next week but mother nature does tend to surprise us!
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.
