Roast beetroot straight from the garden. Not the sexiest veg but super easy to grow. Our kids love the danger of high steaks eating, under the threat of stain and death. #bannatyneslittlefarm #beet #beatthebeet #organicallygrown #growyourown

Every little bit counts

There is a growing push back on the idea of environment posturing. The idea that your efforts to make any change in the manner in which we recycle or tackle how we impact our environment is ultimately futile. The thinking is that in relation to larger negative contributors, your efforts are largely in vain. It has become fashionable to berate people for the apparent contradiction in how they...

Therapy after a long week. It helps keep the murder rate down. Now time for beer. I lie, time for a second beer. #bannatyneslittlefarm #kitchengarden #organic #feedme #growyourown

Hard at work breaking down for our Standing Orders. Strifry, rump and spot the marbling on the biltong. She was one of our failed heifers. Very privileged. I wish we had more. #bannatyneslittlefarm #growyourown #bestbeef

The seeds of change. I’ve spent the last two days in our sweltering new glass house trying to catch up with getting our seeding done.

Our Empire of Dirt

We have always wanted to grow our own food. I think everyone does. If you don’t as yet, I would encourage you try. Even if it is on a tiny scale. Maybe a raised bed at the back door.

We are those folks. Some do it to...
