After a decade of living in Europe my husband and I moved to Melbourne in 2004 for one final chapter of city life. Our relatively short time in Melbourne reinforced the fact that it wasn’t a change of city that we was calling us but in fact our dream of country life on the farm. A pre-christmas scouting trip in 2006 led us to find the farm that we had talked about and dreamed about almost 15 years earlier whilst sitting sipping Bavarian beer in Munich’s finest Beer Gardens. We couldn’t resist the magic and 2007 saw us leave the city behind and put down roots here at Merlewood in Mirboo North. Nestled in the strzlecki ranges who couldn’t help but fall in love with this beautiful country that reminded me so much of my Scottish homeland.
Fast-forward almost a decade later and we are living our dream – breeding beautiful black angus cattle that make us smile each and every day.
