Welcome to the Adelaide Hills & Fleurieu Farmcast – the monthly podcast where we let you know what we’ve been up to on our farm and on our clients’ farms to help inspire and guide you on what makes sense for you to be doing on your farm or lifestyle property.
So, join us as we put all our cards on the table and give you a good sense of what’s in store as we try to be the rising tide that lifts all boats for fellow contractors and fellow small acreage farmers and hobby farmers in the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu.
If you’d like to suggest a topic for future episodes, please send us an email.

Just after packing up on Saturday evening, May 13, Belle Baker sat down with Daniel Stuart from Gallagher to talk about electric fencing and other items of discussion arising from the Farm Fencing Field Days.
The discussion covers some interesting insights about structuring electric fences and an innovative rat and mouse trap.
Plus we hear from some attendees at the Farm Fencing Field Days.

As you’ll hear, the concepts were surprising, and well received, and raised questions, which is the precise outcome Alex wants. After all, where else do down-to-earth people actively start a conversation about WHS?
