The nine acre property is planned for permaculture farming with blueberry production its main focus. We are passionate about conserving resources so have chickens to fertilize the garden and remove weeds, saving labour and the need for chemical fertilizers. Water is conserved by using drip irrigation where possible. We recycle materials such as cardboard and timber.
The western boundary meets a government reserve leading down to the Blythe River. Sunrises over the ocean and sunsets over the trees are beautiful. At certain times we seen the full moon rising over the ocean which is breath-taking.
