Naughty Goat Farm

Location: Australia, Queensland, Ipswich City, Woolshed

Hamish purchased the original farm in December 2010. In the few years Hamish and Nicole lived there they worked towards self sufficiency on the smallholding of 2 acres. In August 2014 Hamish and Nicole purchased and moved to a new farm of 2.5 acres at Summerholm Queensland.
