Season 4: Episode 1 - Iain delivers our Boer goat buck "Sly" to River Cottage to lend a hand increasing Paul's goat herd.
Season 2: Episode 4 - Iain and our son Xaviar delivered some of our Boer goat crosses to join the family at River Cottage. Episode 5 - Iain and Paul spent the morning in our new workshop welding up a bbq grill from an old gas bottle to be used as chicken grills at local events and markets. Keep an eye out for all 4 of us at the Seaside Fair episode, and also Iain in the final feast episode.
Season 1: Those of you who know us, know that we love River Cottage UK and that it was one of the inspirations for our move to rural life. So imagine the thrill of receiving a call from your favourite TV show, asking you to be involved in their Australian series! Iain appears in episode 7 with Paul in our workshop forging a chef's knife for Paul and again in episode 8 at the final feast at River Cottage where another hand forged knife is given to Hugh.
Check our Facebook page for photos of the knives he made hosts Paul West, and Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall and other River Cottage happy snaps. Here is a link to an article and interview on us that the lovely people of River Cottage Australia have put together:
We welcome visitors to our workshop, so if you are in the area come by and say hi and see Iain in action. Our workshop is on our home property, so we are always here, and we aim to be in the workshop 4 days a week. As we run a farm, family and have other community commitments, those days are flexible to fit into our lifestyle, never the same from week to week. Usually though, we are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays and open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Weekends by arrangement. So just call ahead to be sure the workshop will be open on the day you wish to visit. But if the closed sign is on the gate, please give us a call anyway and we may be able to arrange something.
