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 a decade later and we are living our dream – breeding beautiful black angus stud cattle that make us smile each and every day.

2017 was a milestone year for us as we hosted our Inaugural On-Farm Autumn Bull Sale; a dream becoming a reality. We look forward to bringing leading industry black angus stud bulls to breeders of premium angus beef cattle throughout Victoria each and every year with our annual on-property black angus stud bull sale which we will hold in March of each year.

As we grow black angus cows and heifers will also be available for sale too – mainly through private treaty.

We are excited to be an integral part of the Gippsland Breeding Bowl.
