When you grow up in the country you often don’t really appreciate it. Both Ben and I grew up on farms, differing sizes and very differing experiences. One of the advantages I had was growing up in the Yarra Valley which at an hour from Melbourne gives you the best of both worlds.
For me, the dream country existence would be a lovely farmhouse with wraparound verandah, fireplace, lots of white and timber, some bush as well as an open vista and many animals.
One can dream right?
