Family Friendly Farming
There are many things I really love about our business, the fresh air, sunshine, the sounds of birds, great exercise and of course the food. One element however stands out above all the rest being that I am around my wife and children all day, every day. There is nothing I treasure more than teaching my son all the practical skills that go along with running a farming venture and the best part is that we don’t have anything on the farm that is likely to harm my children. We utilise no poisons or heavy machinery, in fact most of our work is done with hand tools and wheelbarrows. In the photo above we are installing Impact Irrigation heads to water our compost area.

Here are ideas to get incorporate more Butterhead Lettuce into your diet:
- Lettuce Tacos replace your taco shell with 1 large Butterhead Lettuce leaf for a low-carb alternative
- Prepare a large rainbow salad for the week. Slice up Lettuce into a container and toss in shredded carrot and beetroot, store with the lid on in the fridge. This can be served out in portions throughout the week either in sandwiches, as a side for a meal or BBQ or even the base for a chicken salad
