We, Maria and Georg, are a professional couple who choose to life on a rural farmlet as a lifestyle choice close to town.
We grow some of our own veggies, have some small animals to support the current setup. Adding to our tight knitted setup we have two independent children in the age of 13 and 11.
We offer free accommodation for help on the farm or for other hands on approaches.
As for us, Maria and Georg, we own the farmlet as a lifestyle choice and work on the property when time allows. Maria is a busy teacher currently on sick leave after knee replacement and I am a Mortgage Broker.
We have some native Australian animals with giant lizards and kangaroos, 2 dogs, plenty of chickens. I do enjoy my greenhouse with vegetables, building things i need, fishing, camping if time allows as well as hunting.
