After thirteen wonderful years on our farm at Ruffy it was time for a change.
We sold all our 94 beautiful alpacas and llamas at a large auction on site in January 2012 and then purchased a 65' narrowboat (which is now called Parrindi) and have spent 4 months of the last three years travelling the canals of England. (Read our blog for the story of our 2014 travels.)
The farm was sold in September 2013 and we moved to our new home at Broadford near Kilmore, about an hour north of Melbourne, a few days after returning from the UK.
The French provincial style house, which was built in 1986, is on a one acre block on the outskirts of the Broadford township. There were two huge eucalypts in the front garden and heaps of established roses around the house but we are making our mark on the property and have managed to introduce lots of garden beds with many new plants.
We have just about finished renovating the interior of the house as well as adding a double garage.
The Parrindi Bed & Breakfast tradition started at the Ruffy farm many years ago will continue at our Broadford home. See Bed & Breakfast page for details.
Life is good!!
