FARM LIFE

Here you will find short videos and snippets of farm life - animals, tractors and machines, events like shearing and mustering sheep and cattle, and what's happening in the garden and around the homestead. 


Inspired by a little urban friend who is two years old and very intrigued by cows, with a mum who searched without much luck to show him videos that weren't animated, sensationalised or from overseas, we thought we would share some of our everyday farm life and bring the farm to you.

This space isn't intended for commentary on agri-politics, best-practice farming, or animal activism (we have a soft spot for all animals, in case you can't already tell!) ... it's just a place for anyone, young or old, who is intrigued about what happens on a real working farm in Australia! 

If you have any questions or if there is something you're particularly interested in and would like to see more of, please don't hesitate to get in touch via the comments, email or social media.

Feel free to follow @sprouthouse_homestead on Instagram or @sprouthousehomestead on Facebook, to be notified on new videos released!

Wooly Good

Updated: Nov 27, 2019

What’s better than a warm, woollen jumper and a rug to curl up with in winter, natural fibres under your feet in a thick carpet, or the feel of quality in a beautifully tailored man’s suit? Wool is wrinkle resistant, insulating, biodegradable, renewable, hypo-allergenic and a natural fire retardant.


Click on the video to see how we round-up and follow the hooves on the long walk into the shed for crutching, which is done in between annual shearing to keep things tidy!
