Excuse Me!!!!!! Last time I checked that was my cup of tea ☕️ Master Snoopy. Happy hump day everyone 🤗 I hope you are all well after yesterday’s terrible weather I was unfortunately on a road trip to Melbourne to deliver pigs which was a very hairy in the wind and then the rain on the way home. All animals are safe on the farm only damage was to our green tin fence over the dairy after 15 years of standing and being bashed by cows 🐄 it fell over. Something else to add to the todo list.

Tonight we have a party on a plate 🎉. Wild harvested venison slow braised in a tomato and bacon sauces served on a Parmesan polenta cake with homemade pickled veg I made last night from @ilovefarmsaus . I also made a another batch of my organic pickled beetroot from @thorpdale_organics oh so good 😊 #winterdish #warmingfood #venison #wildcaught @didge2001 #pickledveg #veg #deer #feedingthefamily #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom

When you get the big chainsaw out only to find I’ve got to go and get my lady chainsaw out to get the job done properly 🤣🤣 I think it’s in need of a new chain I’ve sharpened it all up but it just wasn’t getting through so out my ladies chainsaw and she chewed through that big log like no ones business. Today’s the first day and weeks that I’ve felt strong enough to even have a go fingers crossed this means my body and mind is on the mend 💪 I’m not planning on pushing it though still trying to be good 🤗🤫 #stihl #cuttingwood #girlswork #whoneedsthegym #rayburn #fire #smoke #lownslow

Oh my it’s a tough life on the farm !! Lovely milk breakfast warm winter sun 🌞 lazying on the grass 💚💚

Getting ready for spring I really want to add more colour to the farm over the coming years so I’ve found a few different natives that’s can be inter planted around the farm along with the existing areas of natives. In order to keep track of what I’ve planted and if it’s been successful I’ve started a plant diary so I can journal notes about the plants and if they are a success or total failure. I’m just starting a couple today as the seeds need to be soaked and I’ll keep them in a greenhouse to get them going and fingers crossed by mid spring the ground will be warm (oh and we have had enough rain ☔️) for them to be planted out on the farm. We have got a big 12 months on the farm coming up going to get some big projects finished !!

Stock check 🐄🐂 nope no one is giving birth. We can quite a few cows 🐮 springing up (that’s farmer talk for udders filling up with milk and cow getting ready to give birth). This means multiple checks a day to make sure everyone calves with ease we want nothing more than a healthy mum and calf

Beautiful winter glow tonight as the sun is going down over the farm.

Creamed corn 🌽 fritters with wattlebankparkfarm lamb shoulder yum 😋

This is exactly how I was feeling this morning snuggled under the covers listening to the wind outside at five o’clock I bounced out of bed rang Keenan our market manager and we met at the site of our bass coast makers and growers market to see what the wind was doing we found It was just way to dangerous to hold the market. So we are still here in Wonthaggi making sure we have contacted all our stall holders. It’s always a tough decision when cancelling any markets here is why I currently have 5 doz eggs 60 bread rolls 4 loaves of bread we have cooked a pork shoulder, lamb shoulder and beef roast and 40 rashers of bacon ready to go. That’s without all the loss of sales from meat and cheese. Eek gosh when you write it down I’m feeling overwhelmed lol. I hope you enjoy your Sunday and will catch you all at coal creek next weekend 😘
