Just some very kind words that one of our Farmstay guests has written:
"I have been returning to this farm stay for about seven years. I'm very lucky to have discovered such a valuable example of tough Australian life.
I need to escape from my job and I find this farm stay the most magic form of relaxation and therapy. It has the recipe to calm the spirit, relax the mind and, make a city slicker get in touch with the real world. I need a holiday where I can learn about Oz and its struggling people, whom provide me a meal each day in my city butcher and grocer. Here it is.
The whole family is wise, astute and humble and includes you in their activities when you want or gives you the space when you need. My time has been a shangri-la compared to my stressful office job. I have already signaled my intention to return later this year (to lend a hand with the animals mostly) and go and find native birds that haven't been listed on the list of birds sighted on the farm, see the amazing wallabies and enjoy the crowing of the roosters. I will miss the kids :)
I'm a lucky man whom has discovered just one Australian family who has the energy to share their life and have concern about mine.
Bring your cares and allow them to disappear with the Australianess of the experience. My mind is full of images of my time at Cheyenne Wilderness Retreat FarmStay.
Be prepared for a surprise if you ask them to provide meals for you...it's hard to go without the beautiful food provided...[dreaming of soft poached eggs at breakfast]...and Masterchef quality dishes for dinner. It takes pride and ability to make me feel like I'm in Lygon Street Melbourne. I wish I could take the food home.
I will return later this year to say hello to the Mooees (cows) and chookies and the birdies. I miss having a glass with Nick and Alex. I miss the place already after only two days. Bother !
I have met fellow guests from all walks of life and all parts of the world over the years. I know I will meet more.
Thanks to the Blomfields for my sojourn from the city..."
