We recently had a photography student named Matt on our property who had chosen us as his project for an assignment at Uni. Matt needed to portray “A day in the life of…” with 15 photos.  He ended up following Tom around the property for 2 days and shot lots of photos in the process (he also did our new head shots, thanks Matt!) I do not know how he would have been able to just find 15 photos, I am having trouble myself minimising the amount of photos I would like to put up here… Anyway, here is the gallery of photos, which tells the story, with captions under each photo.

  1. What a beautiful representation! Great photos! And an interesting lifestyle.

  2. Thanks Maria! These photos were taken on a day when Tom was not teaching in the classroom, and there were no projects being done at the time. The lifestyle is wonderful, keeping things simple is very enjoyable, and the connection with the land, the animals and the food you eat is extremely fulfilling!

  3. Awesome photo’s… see you this weekend (it’s massage week at High Spirits for me!) xx

  4. Hey there! I understand this is kind of
    off-topic but I had to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as
    yours require a large amount of work? I’m brand new to operating a blog but I do write in
    my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily
    share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

    1. If you are already writing a journal it won’t take much more time to write a blog. Simply setup your blog and share your thoughts online rather than just on paper!
      Other than that, there is some work involved in getting people to visit your site, but there are plenty of resources online which will share with you how to increase traffic on your site. Good luck!

  5. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is a very well written article.

    I’ll make sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful information. Thanks for
    the post. I will definitely return.

  6. Truly idyllic. What happened to all the WWOOFers?

    1. Wwoofers and volunteers still play an important part in our day to day operation. And we are very grateful for all our helpers, past, present and future! We now have more longer term volunteers, who learn a lot whilst they are with us.

  7. Wonderful website. Plenty of helpful info here. I’m sending it to several buddies
    ans also sharing in delicious. And naturally,
    thank you for your effort!
