We have a small tourist accommodation farm stay B&B, business on 16 acres, situated in North/ East Tasmania, 35 mins drive from Launceston, in a secluded peaceful valley, surrounded by forest with abundant wildlife. Bush walking tracks nearby, even a beautiful rain forest Our farm is 43km from Launceston.
Animals on our farm are Horse retired race horse mare, chooks, goose, rabbits, peacock, small flock of black sheep bred for natural fleece, used for spinning and our playful friendly dog Benny a border collie x smithfield, & a friendly greyhound girl named Tully.
My interests other than gardening & animal care are wool spinning, yoga,reading & art.
