About us at Candlarah: This vacant land captured our hearts and imagination in 2010. We set about building the house and farm with our 2 children, and many willing friends and family. We've enjoyed the journey of creating a home & garden and developing the land. Connecting with the land, our community and attending local landcare work-shops has helped us develop an understanding of our place.
We have loved running cattle, horses and chooks and a big veggie garden. Enjoying the natural beauty of this place and the amazing community is fabulous. We are currently overseas for most of the time and so now share our home with guests. We hope you love it as much as we do. Feel free to check out our website: candlarahfarm.com. or the FB page. BTW, Candlarah is an acronym of our names. :)
