Fine Feathers Hobby Farmlet
This two-acre property is home to Jim and Carole Lewis and their flock of heritage-breed chickens. Eight years ago, there was a house, a shed and not much else. Now there’s a prolific orchard, food garden, and purpose-built coups for the Lewis’s fine feathered friends.
In our food garden
We have over forty fruit trees and a multitude of vines and berries that give us excellent harvests. We also grow a wide variety of tomatoes.
We bottle, freeze, and make jams and chutneys, which we share with neighbours, friends and family.
Standout sustainable practices
We use composted animal manure in our garden.

3 Warraview Close, Warragul
There is ample street parking adjacent to the property’s 2-acre frontage. There are pathways into the property and a set of three stairs. However, you can enter the garden without using the stairs, and the orchard is flat and mown. So, wheelchair access is possible.
