Mannerfarm consists of about 10 acres, just outside a small village named Chudleigh, in the North west of Tasmania.
There is an ample water supply as the property has its own lake and creek running through. There are two old dairies on the property, a piggery, shearer's quarters and a shearing shed.
The original house was built in about 1836, with modern extensions in 1915. It has seen many transformations and ad-ons to reach its current configuration.
At Mannerfarm the philosophy is a simple, sustainable existence with everything used and nothing ever thrown away.
Dogs are better than kids; they are generally easier to train, usually come when called, don't drink or smoke, don't need a million dollars for their education and if they get pregnant...you can sell the results!
Old age means realising you will never own all the dogs you wanted to...
