Funny Farm love

Oh the Funny Farm, I am in love, a beautiful Biodynamic farm with a magnificent home and utterly gorgeous family, bustling with animals, laughter and children running amok. I love the care that has been taken everywhere you look, everything is not just practical but also, awesomely, aesthetically delightful. Emma, Susan, Sahara  (Des) and Sassafras snuggle up together here, they have animals, they grow lots of stuff, they love and they do.
We sat in the sun and talked as the kids ran up (and only once launched off) clay hills, they giggled and sparkled. It was nice to finally sit and chat with Sus and Em, we have had snippets of chats in town but not much nitty gritty, so it was a treat to get to know each other, to start to unfold the beginning of a friendship and as with other great friendships it was perfect to feast whilst doing so.
Scott and I, though thoroughly townies, walked around with gaping mouths and minds that were racing, we would love to be able to take this idea, the feel, the intention, the purpose and create a space kind of similar to this in town (with less animals, obviously). A home overflowing with produce, pecking chickens, openness, care, a place to create for ourselves. Oh yes we are itching for our own home, a place where we can really get our teeth into and flourish, grow and inspire. Hmmmm.

In the meantime, enjoy a little wander through the Funny Farm, stay a while if you like, the sun is warm and the locals are a joy.
