Publisher's Summary

Immerse yourself in this delightful memoir about a decade of life on a small Australian farm. 

This is an audiobook for anyone who enjoys being transported to another life and lifestyle, or who is interested in bees, homesteading, small farming, animals, organic gardening, farmers markets, human nature, and the hilarity and hardship that goes with all that. 

Funny, moving, and engrossing, you'll be transported to a world where one family tries to keep it all together as they juggle a farmyard full of animals, thousands of tourists in the garden, a hundred backpackers in the house, millions of bees in the air, and their commitment to the environment and each other. 

Buzzing with good humour, moving moments, and interesting stories, discover more about the 'simple life' and enjoy a good laugh from this well-reviewed memoir in which author Anna Featherstone lays bare what it's like to follow your dreams and to find success, failure, and finally understanding along the way. 

An added bonus at the end: delightful farmhouse recipes and tips for creating your own organic lip and skin balms. 

This book is read by Australian audiobook narrator Rebecca Harper.

A great listen

I truly enjoyed listening to this audible so much so I bought the book. The book itself takes you on a journey that will make you laugh, cry and pause. The choice of narrator was excellent as well. Her voice and reading style really captured the moments bringing the word pictures to life. At times the style of wrihting drifts into poetry and then flips back to terrific story telling. Thank you for sharing your farm and your journey. From a lover of homesteading and the not so simple life.

Wonderful educationally entertaining family.

I thoroughly enjoyed this entire book. loved the tone of the narration.
I knew a bit about bees as we raised them as kids, but I didn't know there was so much to love about them.
While I'm not into baking or making natural products, I did love hearing the recipes.
My favorite parts? Minnesota Melissa. ( She showed you how we Minnesotans bring our children up, and I'm glad she came to show you.)
The cow in the water. That part grabbed my heart and held on tight. I was mentally cheering, and encouraging, and cringing....it was very emotional.
I recommend this book to anyone daring to live the simple(?!) life-or anyone who just wants to hear about the experience.
