This blog is first and foremost a place for us to record our experiences, trials and errors for future reference and to hopefully gain further knowledge from like minded people. We don’t expect that you will agree with everything that we have written about and we do not claim to be experts in any of the things posted here, however we do hope that the experiences we are having can help others out when it comes to practical and sustainable ways to garden, grow, cook, bake, brew or farm. Here is a bit about us:

I (James) am in my final year of studying agriculture at university and will soon be the 5th generation dairy farming on our family farm ‘Raelands’. Over the last few years I have increasingly been trying to think of ways to become more self sufficient, more involved in community based agriculture (e.g. farmers markets) and more diverse in our enterprises on the farm. All in the hope of sustaining, building and maintaining a decent standard of living for two separate families off a small dairy farm.

My partner Lauren works in the social services sector and enjoys going along with (most) of my crazy ideas and in the future will be blogging about different ideas of her own.

We wont be moving to the farm until my studies are finished, so what a great time to be exploring and testing different options in how we use and produce food!

Enjoy the Blog and we hope it is somewhat useful.

James & Lauren
