Milkwood is a small organic farm-in-the-making near Mudgee in the high hills of central NSW, Australia. It is currently populated by our little family: ex-city-folk Kirsten Bradley & Nick Ritar, along with Ashar Fox, the 2 year old chicken wrangler and allround entertainer.
This blog is a way for us to share the process of setting up a small, sustainable farm from scratch. We have very little start-up capital, but plenty of good information, energy and enthusiasm.
This blog also chronicles our little family’s wanderings through city and country, in the course of being permaculture educators, observers and participants in a wide range of doings and goings-on.
As part of this process we started Milkwood Permaculture, a permaculture education, consultancy and design firm. This business sits as a complimentary enterprise to the establishment of Milkwood Farm and provides us the opportunity to draw on a range of amazing practitioners and educators, to help figure out how we can all move towards regenerative models of living, farming and community.
