The Farm in Diggers Valley

About this Site

This site is the result of our desire to put some of our world on-line.  We live in an amazing place, and whilst we do some very ordinary things from our point of view, we are aware that more people now than ever before have little contact with rural life.  We have a desire to share what we have in terms of its beauty and relative isolation, with people who would enjoy it but may not know how to access such a place.  We hope that many may virtually visit it via this site and that some might also do the real thing sometime.  If you'd like to visit, please email us.

The pictures are all taken by us or people we know, unless otherwise stated.  If you wish to copy them for your personal use, please feel free, but it would be nice if you sent us a message to let us know you've done so.  If you want to use the images for any other purpose, please contact us first.

The site is a mix of personal recording of events (especially the "This Week" updates), and, I hope, some useful educational content.
I have gone for the 'gruesome closeup' when interesting things are happening, so that others who may be unfamiliar with processes like the birth of animals, can see what ordinarily might happen, or in some cases, what can go wrong.

We welcome feedback and requests and can be contacted by email.

Further down this page is a site map with links to most of the pages in this site, with some description of their content.  There are a few other pages scattered about, which you may find in your travels.

NOTE: Any underlined words in this site, should take you to the link they obviously indicate, or in the case of particular terms associated with aspects of farming, they will link to the glossary.  In many cases, if you are using a mouse pointer and hover it over any link or dotted underline, a label will appear providing more detail about the link's destination or the word's meaning. Links will generally open in a new window.

The Glossary is accessible from many pages where particular words may need explanation.
