We live on a remote mountainous 390ha farm in the Western Cape South Africa. There are four independent households on the farm, and we all look out for one another. We decided to start the blog to hopefully inspire others to try simple living naturally.
Our lifestyle isn't for everyone, but for us it's everything!
We welcome your feedback and suggestions so drop us a message.

My environmental epiphany happened when delivering yachts to the Caribbean in the '80s when I first realized humanity's lack of respect for the ocean and its inhabitants.
I've lived in South Africa, England and Canada.
And here I am, living the dream with my farm family.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a vet, and was always bringing animals home.
I bought my first horse when I was 6, and have worked with them my whole life.
Hubby and I bought this farm seven years ago, where I breed warmblood horses and chickens.
