What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a sustainable design system that provides for human needs while having positive effects on the surrounding environment.

It is based on the ethics of earth care, people care and fair share, and provides practical solutions to the global crises we are currently facing.

Permaculture is for EVERYONE, regardless of their education, background, or previous experience.

Permaculture is NOT just about trees, or just about gardening! You don't need loads of land to practice it and it's a design method that can be applied to all social systems.

We'll use your donations to further our plans to plant more trees and vines.

I’m so very pleased to have this new postcard collection available for sale to our supporters (and anyone else!). Full colour, high quality images on the front, with the back printed for use as a postcard (or put them on your wall!)

The majority of the photos were taken by the most wonderful Marjolein […]


Bye Babies

We’ve bid a fond farewell to this year’s goat kids this week. Lovely though goats are, I was finding that I had too many to manage alone when it came to walking them. So the kids, along with some of the adults, have been rehomed elsewhere and I’ll be concentrating on a smaller group […]


Last Kid of the Season

Just when we thought that kidding for the season was complete, I realised that Kylie too was pregnant, and yesterday she presented us with our last kid of the season.

So since January we’ve had a total of ten born, half girls and half boys. We’ve sadly lost one (Misty’s, which was […]


Pygmy Goats For Sale

All sold now, thanks. 

With this year’s kids coming along well, we’ve now got more goats that we need. So I’ve decided to concentrate on the larger goats, selling the pygmy part of the herd.

I have available –

2 x adult milkers, both proven mothers who have each produced two sets […]


Schneckle’s Surprise


Schneckle has surprised us with an unexpected pregnancy, and gave birth to a pair of beautiful twins in the the early hours of yesterday morning.

Having only arrived with us at the beginning of October, Schneckle must have fallen pregnant within a very short time. Go girl!

With a busy summer […]


A Shitty Day

We know how to enjoy ourselves!

Our neighbour kindly allowed us the contents of his goat shed if we cleaned it out, and as you can never have enough goat shit, it was on with the wellies and in we went.















In the Kitchen: Cheese Pie

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe as there are so many sites out there dedicated to doing that better than I can. But occasionally there’s something I discover which pushes all the right buttons for me, and this is one of those ideas. ‘Cheese pie’ is a fabulous way to use […]


Miserable Afternoon

It’s a miserable afternoon here (yup, it happens, even in glorious Portugal!). What we need is a cute goat kid photo to cheer us all up!



Apparently it means something like ‘cutie’ in German*, but it’s also the name of our latest goat. Schneckle recently joined us because she was lonely as an only goat, and is settling in well with our little herd. She’s standing her ground quite effectively, struggling only with Beyonce who has turned into the beastgoat […]


Whilst I was out …


Hey Mum! We remodelled the rabbit shed for you 🙂
