Adelaide Hills & Fleurieu Farmcast

Adelaide Hills & Fleurieu Farmcast

A monthly farming podcast featuring Patrick O’Driscoll (Pods) and Belle Baker sharing stories of what we’ve been up to on our farm and on our clients' farms to inspire and guide you on what you could be doing on your farm or lifestyle property. To us, it doesn’t matter if you have a small property with only a single cow, horse, or handful of chickens, or you’re running a larger rural enterprise; if you’re managing land in the Adelaide Hills or Fleurieu, you’re farming. And that means we’re here to support you in planning, maintaining, and operating your property.
