Welcome to the Fairy Wren Cottage blog,
 a place to share our knowledge & country life guided by the seasons. 
Homesteading, organic & permaculture gardening, poultry keeping, cooking, crafting & creating, and sharing the adjustments we (my husband, daughter & I) have made due to illness and injury over the last 7 years, living frugally and abundantly.
Fairy Wren Cottage is a 115 yr old cottage, built on the side of a hill in Tasmania, an island off mainland Australia. Our little family has planted food hedges, small organic orchards with heritage fruit trees home to ducks and hens, wild life areas that attracts bird life and Tasmania's endangered marsupials,  perennial borders, berry patches and a kitchen garden, squeezing as much as we can into 3/4 of an acre.
