Our urban farm is less than 3kms from Hobart city, just under 1 acre and is a hub of productivity with veggies, orchards, goats, chooks, honey bees and more. Living here is bliss. We don’t sell produce commercially, rather it’s for our own use and to share with friends.
The backstory: We moved onto 1300 square metres of land in late 2012 and promptly filled it with our mixed fruit orchard, a young edible forest garden, annual and perennial vegetables, ducks (that have since moved on), chooks and bees. In 2016 we bought the neighbouring weed block which means our property is just under 1 acre. Since then, we’ve expanded our gardens, chicken systems and welcomed two toggenburg goats Gerty (our milker) and Jilly Love face her daughter.
