Spring is almost here: the sap is beginning too flow. Time to get my pruning skates on Pronto! #farmlife, #localfood, #eatlocal, #sustainable #farming #pinotnoir #pruning17 #sap #sapflow

#nonlethalcontrol by #maremmas has been lethal in this case. Dry conditions since autumn have made the season hard for all including ferals. The maremma kennel is about 50m away in the top of photo. Foolish fox to come so close.... #maremmas, #nonlethalcontrol #ryelandsheep, #farmlife, #dogsofinstagram #happyhealthyhumaneag, @local_food_loop #sustainable #farming

Time for another #MeetTheBirds! Unlike many wetland species which have dull plumage, the #PurpleSwamphen has an impressive purple-blue neck, breast and belly, and an oversized bill and frontal shield, both of which are bright red, as are its beady eyes.

When a swamphen walks away from you, it usually flicks its tail up and down to reveal a gleaming white rump, which contrasts with the bird’s black upperparts. The entire combination is dazzling when ambling across a sunlit grassy sward.

The Purple Swamphen is featured in our Melbourne Birds booklet, which we teamed up with @birdlifeoz to create.Give us a shout if you want one!

Any day now we are expecting our beautiful ryeland lambs. Oh we are a mixed farm, that's an Irrigation drip line in bottom front. This little fellow was born in the vineyard. #ryelandsrock #ryelandsheep, #farmlife, #localfood, #eatlocal, #happyhealthyhumaneag, @local_food_loop #melbourne #melbournecafe #melbournecafes #melbournefood #melbournefoodie #produce #fresh #local #lamb #heritagebreed #sustainable #farming #reallivefarmer

Walked out my back door to find this hen with 14 chickens under her. A miracle that she sat through 21 days out in the open to hatch this lot. Especially with foxes around. Maybe this is a win for my Maremmas live stock guard dogs. #anconachickens, #anconas, #chicks, #cute , #farmlife, #localfood, #eatlocal, #nonlethalcontrol #happyhealthyhumaneag, @local_food_loop #melbourne #melbournelocal #yourlocal #melbournebrunch #produce #sustainable #farming

This is a vineyard spider, or more correctly one of the native species that have adapted to our vineyard. We call them bird sh-t spiders. This fellow is beautiful. #spiders, #vineyard #farmlife,#sustainable #farming #localfood, #eatlocal, #happyhealthyhumaneag, @local_food_loop #melbourne #melbournecafe #melbournecafes #melbournefood #melbournefoodie #wine #pinotnoir #rose #melbournelocal #yourlocal #melbournebrunch #produce

🤠🥕COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE a.k.a. CSA🤠🥕 A 9 week glimpse of our 16 weeks of #CSAMembers Autumn-Winter WEEKLY SHARES.....#csa4life 🥕A FARM IN YOUR ❤❤ WHAT IS CSA? 🤠🚜🙌🌱🙆
In v.simple terms, you pay a farmer ahead & directly invest in your food supply, so the farmer knows how many people they are planting for. 🖒The farm then shares what they've skilfully grown among the CSA members. Basically, eaters become shareholders. It's an authentic relationship of mutual support, respect, commitment & risk share between farmers & eaters & builds a mutually rewarding resilient community 🤠🚜🙌🌱🙆🥒🥕🖒FOR THE FARMER it means less waste, less risk & a reliable income - the means to plan ahead w focus, focus to their CSA folk who appreciate good, pure fresh food & what it really takes to grow it 🥕🖤
FOR YOU, for an av. of $50/wk (in adv), you know for REAL where your food is coming from (incl farm visits & fun events)& you become connected w the actually local seasons in an authentic way. There are more/less abundant & sparse seasons. IF YOU WANT TO EAT ORGANIC & LOCAL for REAL, THIS is HOW!

You will experience your meals in a deeper, more connected way w Planet Earth & your farmers.
Our CSA offers you a direct relationship to our farm in GLENLYON (near Daylesford Vic)

Lolly the dorper lamb hangs out with the poddy calves. Hello Lolly! They tracked me down pruning - on the off chance they'll get another feed! . Me thinks it's time for weaning. #naturaldairy #farmlife, #localfood, #eatlocal, #happyhealthyhumaneag, @local_food_loop #melbourne, #wine #pinotnoir #rose #melbournelocal #yourlocal #melbournebrunch #produce #fresh #local #lamb #heritagebreed #sustainable #farming

Sunrise & moon set. Another day doing the morning rounds to check pregnant ewes, cattle, goats. Now finished time to get back into the vineyard to get stuck into pruning. #beautyoffarms #sunrise, #moon #reallivefarmer #happyhealthyhumaneag, #farmlife, #localfood, #eatlocal, @local_food_loop #produce #fresh #local #lamb #heritagebreed #sustainable #farming

Slashing the prunings. DJ loves a tractor ride but treats the camera with contempt. Bloody #borderterrier #dogsofinstagram #masseyfergusson #reallivefarmer #farmlife #farmlife #vineyard #pinotnoir #localfood @local_food_loop #pruning17
