As the new year unfolded and the warmer weather was here to stay the inevitable happened and fires started in the high country. Being fully booked for December and January and looking forward to meeting all our guests, but it was not to be once the fires started not far from us the cancellations came rolling in. January was pretty bleak with bookings far and few between. We could definitely do with some bookings for the next few months and we would love for you to come and stay at our farm with us.
Our community would appreciate any support you can give by staying with us , bringing your empty esky and filling it up with all the fabulous wines and produce that the King Valley has to offer.
We love our neck of the woods and we hope you will too.

FOOD & WINE REGION / ATTRACTIONS
The King Valley Region is home to some of the country’s leading producers of Prosecco along with a vast array of award winning wineries, breweries, fantastic country pubs & gourmet dining experiences. Many of our guests are also attracted to the amazing silo art, local events, arts facilities, bush walking, cultural heritage and local food and wine festivals.
Our area is also steeped in Ned Kelly history if you are interested in following his footsteps via the Ned Kelly Touring Route, Glenrowan & the Ned Kelly Vault Museum in Beechworth all are well worth a visit.
We are a working farm so you will hear animal noises at times, particularly at feeding time around 8:30am and around just before sunset.
The farm is home to a menagerie of animals including three friendly dogs. At times we will be out and about feeding animals and attending to jobs around the farm.
At present we have 3 friendly baby goats, which are just adorable and enjoy a pat or a cuddle.
Depending on the time of year you may even be lucky enough to view the birth of calves or lambs, which is very exciting
