A farmyard full of animals, thousands of tourists in the garden, a hundred backpackers in the house, millions of bees in the air ? and one family. What could possibly go wrong?

When Anna and Andrew move their young family to a farm, the future is uncertain. All they know is what they feel ? a desire to become contributors, not consumers. City folk, they are starting from scratch ?not knowing how to make anything, grow anything, fix anything or really do anything?.

Ten years on, and the 90-acre farm transforms from a bland grass paddock to something that is energetic, vibrant, ethical and beautiful. The farm becomes home to honey and native bees and a multitude of plant and animal species; it lures thousands of visitors all seeking a slice of idyllic farm life to enrich their souls and, sometimes, their social media feeds. Meanwhile, Anna feeds her own soul, becoming a passionate producer of honey, herbs, handmade medicinal balms and other farm-made goods, recipes for which are included in this book.

It?s called 'living the dream', but is it? Discover more about the ?good life? and enjoy a good laugh from this entertaining, engrossing book 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.
