Hello, my name is David and I live on a small farm in central Austalia. I haven't always lived on a farm. For many years, I lived and worked in Brisbane and had a conventional life. However, when I turned 50, I realised that I needed to make a change so I decided to quit my job and move out to the countryside. I wasn't sure what to expect. I had some vague ideas of working the land and tending to crops. Thankfully, my neighbours were very supportive and taught me everything I needed to know. I decided to start this blog to help others.

Energy and household bills are going up – and yet your needs at home remain the same. Trying to keep your garden watered and your cars and home washed is bad enough.

While it may seem like an unnecessary expense now, there are huge benefits down the line.

For this reason, food safety is an issue of concern that must be addressed. Foodborne illness is generally caused by consumption of food particles that are contaminated by toxic chemicals, radioactive materials, or microbial pathogens. Another common emerging problem is food allergies. While most foodborne conditions might be self-limiting, some complications may be so serious and even cause death.
