Trout Farm open weekends and public/school holidays
On the farm we have many species of birds, including King Parrots which we often feed. Kangaroos regularly come out of the forest to graze in our paddock below the cottage and, at night, you need to be vigilant to avoid the wombats that come out to eat on the roadsides.
About Jane and David Woodcock
Our names are David and Jane and we "retired" from Melbourne to this beautiful part of Victoria. We chose it because of its proximity to Melbourne whilst giving us the peace and tranquility of the country. We now grow walnuts and fatten beef cattle. We have a strong interest in photography and this photogenic area gives us many opportunities to unleash our creative passion.
Jane and David Woodcock purchased this farmhouse in 2003
Why Jane and David Woodcock chose Neerim East
We had previously travelled through this area on many occasions and every time we were very attracted to it. The feeling of peace and contentment never went away. Apart from the beauty surrounding us, this area has a reasonably high rainfall. It is always green. The property has two permanent creeks and a dam. It has a mixture of flat and undulating land which is very fertile. Close proximity to Neerim South shopping , local wineries, scenic walks etc add to our enjoyment.
What makes this farmhouse unique
Rose cottage is an amazing place. Obviously added onto at various times through its history. The ceiling in the main living room is original, as are the walls in the bedrooms and hallway. The kitchen is light and sunny with room to have breakfast. The livingroom has a combustion fire which keeps the place warm and cosy. The views from the windows are wonderful. The east facing verandah is a wonderful place to either start or end the day. The view is of the native forest and the green paddocks, often including cattle. In December 2012 we built a house for ourselves hidden behind the big hay shed, ensuring privacy for everyone.
