Balingup Small Farm Field Day

Not that we intend to buy a small farm down here, but we are always interested in farming and what you can do with a small parcel of land.

Leaving Margaret River early this morning the sun glistened on the grape vines and paddocks, and the animals were enjoying the cool early morning.

On our way over to Balingup we passed this free range egg business that has made very good use of old caravans…..unique chook houses for their chickens to roost in at night.

Arriving at the field day it was already busy.  The car parks were filling fast and everyone was out enjoying the beautiful weather.

The livestock were obviously used to having people around.

The machinery, garden suppliers and craftspeople all seemed to be having a great day selling their wares.

And the kids had plenty of activities to keep them occupied.

On our way home we visited a quilt exhibition, stopped to enjoy the beautiful Blackwood River and Jim was pretty excited to see the rally cars in Nannup.  They were competing in an annual RallyWA event today.

It was certainly a glorious autumn day in the south west.

    Looks like a great day out. Brings back some happy memories of life on the farm. Kerry you should not rule out buying a holding down south. I can see Jim on a tractor and drenching sheep in the pens. Plus his tee shots will be much easier to find in the paddocks.
