We started work on our three and a half acre property at Whiteside (just past Petrie on the way to Dayboro) 14 years ago.
Over the last 5 years, we have been extending our productive gardens and we try to be as sustainable as possible. We are ¾ of the way through completion of our chook house (it was a little larger than it looked on paper), and we now have ‘Walter the Wonderful’ with his bevy of 16 hens of various breeds.
We have slowly been adding a range of edible plants such as loquat, avocados, assorted citrus, paw paw, babaco, coffee, banana, sea grape, moringa, curry tree, fig, guava, panama berry, malay apple, johnstone river apple, sweet leaf tree, pineapples, tamarind, chokoes, dragon fruit, turmeric, ginger, yacon, nashi pear, pecan, tamarind.
We have numerous raised vegie beds.
An aquaponics system is our latest development – housing 100 jade perch and a variety of vegies. Our newly developed soldier fly farm to feed both fish and chickens is also working well.
The house and vegie area is reasonably flat; the terrain leading down to the orchard, chook pen and aquaponics does have a considerable slope to get down, but once you are there it is flat.
We will put a campfire on for smoko and cook up some damper and scones in the coals. Free bush turkey to take home for the kiddies with every visitor.
