My place is 5km from Barham and the mighty Murray River with sealed road frontage. The Tin House is on the Backroads Trail which offers a variety of on farm experiences and local produce. A breakfast will be found in the fridge - picked from our neighbouring farmers - Bundarra Berkshire bacon, Good Eggs, The Great Australian Squeeze OJ and Jonesy's Milk.
The house was built by a local designer builder 20 years ago and has been designed to benefit from the environment with a light drenched open living space allowing beautiful views across the farm and bush surrounds. The afternoon light filters into the living area warming the space in winter, ceiling fans in all rooms and evaporative air con keeping the house cool on the hottest summer days.
The large house dam has a resident goose named Gerald and a family of wild wood ducks, with a number of other water birds and reptiles taking advantage of the oasis.
The farm house yard is the main point of access, and being a working farm with free ranging pigs and alpacas, although very quiet and friendly, we would ask guests not to feed them. Also please shut gates if they open one and be careful of snakes if walking. The front road access is a nice walk, another walk takes you down the back to a natural wetland space at the rear of the property that is alive with birds and kangaroos.
The house dams are unfenced so, if there are non swimmers or children in your group, please take CARE.
The Tin House is a working farm and neighbouring properties are also actively running their businesses, so vehicles and machinery will be sighted on occasion. The fence to the east of house is the boundary so entry is not permitted - a map of our property marking walks etc is in- house. Pigs are fed daily so you are welcome to watch if interested.
Someone will also be on hand nearby if assistance is required, contact numbers provided in-house.
No additional overnight guests permitted
I have been involved in agriculture for most of my life, farming cattle, sheep and cereal crops with my husband Greg. Following the sale of our farm in 2009 we relocated to Mudgee where I conceived the Mudgee Corner Store - a local produce store and cafe - which I operated in partnership with my daughter. We moved on again in 2015 buying The Tin House with 80acres of farmland on which we now run free range Berkshire pigs, still living in Mudgee with very frequent visits to peaceful Barham which allows us to share our space with people seeking a short or extended break in the country.
I enjoy travelling, yummy food and fine wine with a good book in hand!
