Crossmaglen, Glen Innes NSW
We live on a typical New England property 13km North of Glen Innes in northern NSW. We run sheep and cattle for breeding and also plant quite a few crops every year.
Our winters are very cold and the summers are usually mild. There is no typical day on the farm, we could be checking and moving cattle or sheep, drenching in the yards, spraying weeds, or getting paddocks ready for crops. We have a large country garden with chickens and ducks and a vegetable patch as well. My husband's passion is his machinery which include tractors, dozers, baling equipment, excavators...the list goes on and on!! We love having visitors and love sharing our passion for farming.
