Australian Inspiration

I was fortunate enough to recently spend a few weeks with my family on a friends farm near Coffs Harbour in Australia – it was a huge inspiration for how we source our materials, not to mention a reinvigoration of the soul!

Much of the farm itself was built by them with wood felled on the 350 acre farm; I spent time helping to work on the dam used to create the swimming pond, with wood sourced just a few hundred feet away. Whilst this is clearly impossible for all but a few people it did inspire us to look at how we manage the business and to source as locally as possible – though a few hundred feet would be a hard target for anyone!
