the day the hens became media stars


See these girls?


They are SO ready for their close up. Which they got today. Because a TV crew came to visit to film a cooking show on the farm.






This show. LOVELY people. 

There was a bit of filming of chickens and pigs and apparently a whole lot of food.

I was mostly busy washing and delivering eggs. 

Adam was just out of shot fixing the electric fence.




And just off to their left was the pen of meat birds, scheduled to have One Bad Day next Tuesday, and of which, before I even figured out a proper mailing list, I've managed to pre-sell the lot. Really very happy about that. Very excited that a fabulous local restaurant is taking some, plus one of our pigs. 

Which leave us with, er, carrots and potatos for dinner? Oops. Not long till September is it? We'll be scheduling new batches every three weeks then, with a total of two new pens in planning!



September is also when the episodes shot on the farm will be aired. 

Celebrity chef, yes, but Adam's fabulous custom made nesting boxes on TV? ALRIGHT!

Too cool! With your beautiful farm and that spectacular ocean backdrop, I’m sure it’s only the first of many TV shows you’ll host.

Personally, I want to see Costa from Gardening Australia film a segment down there!

Wow, now that’s a view that would totally distract me from whatever the TV chef was cooking! Congrats on selling all those chooks, must be a great feeling.

Wow…have only just found your wonderful blog and have spent way too much of my precious quiet time while the twins are asleep reading all your posts lol!!

I have often watched that cooking show and your beautiful farm seems like the perfect location…but how surreal for you it must have been…going about your everyday jobs while everyone having a little party in your paddock!

What a fantastic space you have here in blogland and ‘real’ life …i so wish our paddocks looked that nice although the other half is labouring away with the excavator out there now while i ‘labour’ here at the computer!! Our 3 chooks and their little tractor pale in comparison to all those chooks of yours!

Anyway, just wanted to say a little hi and let you know how much i have enjoyed reading about your life and family…shall be a regular now…have a lovely weekend!

I’m looking forward to the day when a film crew comes and films YOU cooking 😉
