About

Bee collecting propilis

We are two people (Rohan & Emily) living in a caravan (The Humpy) and trying to grow as much of our own food as possible while we set up a bee and rhubarb farm in Central Victoria.

Our passion is beekeeping, and we are working on establishing the second naturally managed, permanent site commercial apiary in Australia that complies with the International Demeter Standards for Beekeeping.  Malfroy’s Gold is the first, and currently the only, commercial apiary of this type in Australia and we will be following in their pioneering ethical and sustainable apiculture footsteps.

We also love rhubarb because it’s so damned cooperative and the millions of bush rats we have here aren’t interested in it.  Rhubarb and honey go pretty well together too!

This site is about our adventures into the world of farming, our simple life in a 16ft caravan, a little bit about trying to flog some stuff to make a living and a lot about the joys of being connected to the land.

Thanks for stopping by!
