This blog and site is your window into what we are out to achieve, and how
we can make a difference in the world through our commitment to be the most
productive, efficient and profitable bio-dynamic farmers in the country,
supplying the highest quality produce to our community.
This will be achieved by; 1) working in tandem with our environment, enhancing
and repairing the surrounding area, being leaders in this field within the
community; 2) having our enterprises be models on which others can learn from and
replicate, and be a lasting contribution to society by demonstrating what is
possible; and 3) having the food we grow and produce be the most nutritious,
mouth-watering, gorgeous and delicious food ever tasted!
All of this will be achieved by using sustainable practices, minimising our
impact on the planet and all of its inhabitants.
The content of the posts will primarily be about what we are doing on the
farm and matters that relate to that, like organic food, bio-dynamics and
community supported agriculture. We may wander slightly off topic to include
material on sustainability, the environment, climate change and the like, but
generally we’ll remain in the green arena.
And what is this term ‘tree-changers’? Wikipedia describe it by including it
in their description of the related Australian term, ‘sea-change’.
"A sea-change (or sea change)
is an abandonment of city living in favour of a perceived ‘easier life’ in rural
coastal communities. The term derives from the popular ABC TV television
which triggered the phenomenon of many city-dwellers mimicking the drama’s
protagonist’s escape from urban life. The result of this phenomenon
(known as the ‘sea change effect’) is a rapid boom in tourism and real estate
development in coastal Australia, particularly in New
South Wales. A similar term, tree-change,
describes the movement of urbanites to the countryside."
for the Wikipedia page.
In other parts of the world, what we are doing is probably called
‘homesteading’ or ‘small plot farming’ or ‘alternative life styling’.
