about us

G'Day! I'm Robert.

Australian born, I was raised in rural Victoria and have spent most of my life on this farm. I am very hardworking, driven, adventurous and an avid world-traveller. I've hiked the Grand Canyon; climbed Cotopaxi, the highest active volcano in the world, in Equador; worked as a ranger in Tanzania, hitchhiked past the Arctic Circle with the Ice Road Truckers and seen the Northern Lights in Alaska; saw the Pyramids in Egypt; drove the famous Route 66 in California; and rode elephants in Thailand.

I've backpacked, hiked and hitchhiked my way across the globe and although I have travelled the world extensively and there is still so much that I want to see and do, I will always call Australia home. I have always had a passion for travelling and beer -
so I thought, what better way to combine both of my passions than to own and operate my own farmstay and microbrewery, here in Victoria.

Since 2006, I have worked in the industry and hosted guests on my farm. I enjoy meeting unique and interesting people and the great atmosphere that is created by many people coming to stay & celebrate with us. Having spent most of my life on the farm, I appreciate the beauty and simplicity of country living and I want to share my knowledge and lifestyle with you!
