Hello and welcome to my new Blog HunterGathererForager where I will be sharing our families journey to the “simple” life. We have been living country life where we rent 2 acres for nearly 3 years now and have learnt many things on our journey (and never stop learning). We have a huge interest in homesteading and old skills and have been blessed meeting lots of wonderful people who have shared skills, great food and conversation. We have learnt to breed heritage chickens, grow from seed, make cheese and preserve. We have had many triumphs and many disasters!.
Before I go any further I should probably introduce myself and my family. I am Anne a 29 year old mumma to a beautiful 2.5 yr old little girl Nyah and a bouncing 12 month old boy Banjo I am also a Loctician/Preserver/crafter/baker/propagator as well as many other things. I share my Journey with my wonderful partner Dane who has studied Permaculture, Mechanical fitting installed artworks at Bienalles, worked as a farmhand a well as being a great dad,builder, dab hand at chook rangling and milking (cow) and supporting my many endeavors.
We are in a very lucky spot 2.5 hours drive from Sydney with cool weather and Lake views and we really are lucky to have the chance to live such a idyllic lifestyle where we can “try before we buy”.
Our current dream is to eventually be selling some of our produce to help us reach the goal of owning our own property. There are many dreams within the dream – a micro-dairy, permaculture paradise, Farm gate cafe, market garden to name a few but to start small we are working at trying to bring some of the splendors of our garden to the public.
I hope you enjoy reading our blog and can get some joy , laughs or lessons.
