Jennifer Hill and Annette Long are sisters, mothers and Grandmothers sharing a lifetime interest in food. We enjoy using seasonal produce and cooking from scratch, limiting packaged and processed foods as much as possible.

In July 2013 we wrote our first cookbook – Back to Basics. We had heard so many people mention that they no longer had the time to cook and we realized there was a need for a basic cookbook that simplified cooking for the family.

Farm Fantastic Alpacas on Show

EVERYDAY OF THE EVENT

Alpacas produce luxurious fleece but did you know how much fun there is in breeding them? These eco-friendly animals are suited to small lifestyle blocks as well as large broad-acre farms. Their soft padded feet, communal dung piles, low water intake and gentle grazing nature make them very low impact on the land. The region offers friendly, personalised service to prospective alpaca owners whether you are looking for pets, lawn mowers, herd guards or breeding stock.
