Rybrae Farm

Finally we can introduce 'Rybrae Farm' to our blog followers!
(Can you figure out how we came up with the name??).

Rybrae Farm is situated in a town called Amphitheatre, which is about 70 km from Ballarat. It is the town that David grew up in and the town where my parents bought a holiday house some 20 years ago.
It is the town David and I met as kids and then fell in love some years later.
It is where our hearts are.

The farm features a 5 bedroom home that is run by solar and wind power and we also have some appliances that use gas (and some lights!). We have approximately 135 acres with 6 dams. There is a lot of bush areas, with some cleared areas too.

We have so much work to do! 
But can't wait to get stuck in.

For those who are wondering, we won't be living out there. We will be staying in town. It doesn't make sense for us to move given that we both work in town, Ryley is at school and Braeden at Kinder.

  2. That is AMAZING! Should I ever find myself in your neck of the woods, I might have to stop by to admire everything you've already done and everything you're still going to do! (I live in the USA...). You inspire me so much.
