I grew up on the family dairy farm in South Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. The farm embraced not only dairy cows, but show horses, dogs, goats, sheep, pigs and chooks. Add to that the mandatory 22 farm cats that regularly 'did the hay sheds over' for their catch of the day amid the unavoidable mice population, then lined up at cow time for their pay - a dish of frothy fresh milk.
A zesty interest in natural health led me to study Herbs, Flower Essences and Homoeopathics. Throw in a Health Food Shop for a few years, mid the arrival and upbringing of 5 Healthy Kids. That in itself brought me an Automatic Diploma in the University of Life. Well, I think so anyway.
Forward to present time, with all of above ticked off the to-do list, I now focus on supplying my Natural Medicine Blends, to Organic and Conventional Farmers, and a steady stream of People who are looking for Alternative Help for their own Health.
Nestled in a tranquil little valley, I have a tad under 2 acres to play on and to grow my herbs, food and flowers, and tend to my chooks and goats. The cat realm totals 2, and sleeping seems to be their most successful claim to fame.
