Simple country living is really at the heart of Life on Milo’s Farm. A life that is focused on doing things slowly, in traditional ways, and in rhythm with our surroundings. Although life is good here on the farm, it’s not all baby animals and baking. I’ve learnt a lot along the way, and I’m here to write and photograph it.
It’s easy to get really caught up in the hustle and bustle and forget to slow down. Soon enough, another day, or month or year has passed, and those dreams you wrote about in your journal have again not been achieved, but you as a human have survived another year of hustle and bustle and feel like you have nothing to show for it.
And sometimes, something major needs to happen to really shift your perspective and viewpoint about the world. I’d say I’ve always lived the bushlife, but the last few years has really shown to me how much more I need to be living it in order to feel as if I am at peace with myself. So in this blog and all the attached social media profiles, you’ll find an array of homesteading stories including recipes, tutorials, projects, musings, DIY, gardening, life hacks, animals and photography, that explore the life of my husband and I and all our fur children as we live our days homesteading in the Australian bush.
