Introduction to Diva Farm Days

Let me introduce myself

I am a Mum of one and a farmers wife of 26 years and counting. I also moonlight as a farmer, domestic goddess and child entertainer, all from the safety of my own home.

We live in what we consider to be one of the most beautiful parts of this country, the Mallee in North West Victoria.  Whenever we journey this great big country, we admire and love where we are, but it is always nice to return home.

We share our farm, which is a business and a lifestyle, with lots of sheep, 2 kelpies, 1 bitzer, 1 cat, 3 goats, 6 pet lambs, 3 chooks and 1 rooster.

I love to cook, crochet, knit, scrapbook, quilt, garden, upcycle, handmake, read, play piano and occasionally I find time to clean.

My blog name comes from a mixture of our initials.  When I first moved to the farm my Mother-in-Law was a big help to me.  While making my first batch of tomato sauce she was my go-to when I had a problem, (by the way the sauce turned out delicious).  I made labels for the bottles and after a bit of working out I came up with the name DIVA.

I hope you enjoy reading what we get up to.

  2. Hello Ann,
    Hubby was born in Sea Lake. We have just been visiting the area, catching up with the extended family. We had a wonderful, completely freezing time. We're now on our way home to warm Hervey Bay.
    Looking forward to reading your posts of the Mallee and daily life.
