This farm blog is about our family life on a dryland broad acre farm. I hope by writing about our life, friends, relatives and others will gain a greater knowledge of rural life, where their food comes from and the struggle of small rural communities to maintain their facilities and quality of life.
For those in South Australia, help for farm safety and compliance matters can be found at www.broadacrefarmsafety.com
Farm girl pretty in pink on the new quad bike at Christmas time
Farm boy very excited about the bike
Being the safety conscious fuddy duddy that I am, we have RULES that go with the bike! Only laps on a certain circuit, the speed has been significantly 'dialled' back on this bike, helmet, gloves, decent shoes and adult supervision is compulsory and we have hand signals for communication when they can't hear me! I'm also considering a crush protection device, but I'm not sure about them yet, we'll see.
