Our twin brothers, Ernie and Eddie, are extremely friendly and love attention. They are mischievous and funny, you will get lots of laughs and entertainment interacting with these boys
Our lovely lambs often come to us as orphans and require plenty of love and care in our family. Their gentle and kind nature makes them fantastic huggers. An approachable and listening friend that has endless warm cuddles and long chats available.
We have a beautiful team of horses that are highly perceptive with a developed level of awareness to sense and respond to body language, emotions and thoughts. They have the ability to mirror out emotions and provide the opportunity to explore how you relate to others.
Gracie, our Jersey calf was separated from her mum early in her life. Bottle raised here with us, she has found a loving home.
Our free range chooks provide farm fresh eggs and seasonal offspring. Relax by the pond and watch the ducks dive and play. Hei Hei, the kind and gentle rescue rooster, loves a cuddle on the green grass.
Wilbur was rescued from a piggery, he holds a special place in our hearts from a very young age. His highly intelligent nature makes him a humorous and understanding friend (once he's had a belly rub). Be ready for endless giggles!
Koda and Miley, our beautiful pair of dogs have been raised as family members. They make fantastic listeners and give comforting hugs.

The stingless, native busy bees are completely harmless. Watch and learn about their very important place in the world of pollination.
Our animals are often rescued and reared to be valued as members of our family. This strong relationship that we have with every single animal means that we can assist you in connecting with them personally, to understand their thoughts, emotions and stories.
Having the privilege of growing up on a family farm, owning and training horses, milking cows, collecting eggs, and growing small crops, I felt a real sense of place and purpose. Offering that experience to our children was my ultimate goal. That dream became a reality after years of dedication and hard work. Together with my husband and three daughters, we were able purchase a bare block to begin our own farming adventures. I’ve gained years of experience working as a diploma qualified Early Educator with children that have developmental delays in various education settings. I have seen the need for a form of alternative learning opportunities. My dream and goals grew! As a result, animal assisted learning has been incorporated into my early intervention program with rewarding outcomes. I am passionate about sharing the healing presence of animals and real life farm experiences in a therapeutic setting. We have recently established a purpose built well-being farm open to NDIS participants to heal, grow, and explore in a safe and nurturing environment.
