Freckle Farm is family friendly and unlike conventional farms, there are no nasty chemicals or dangerous activities that are off limits to children. Rob and Deb’s three girls love helping out with every aspect of what happens on the farm.

Hannah (14) and twins Laura and Megan (12) absolutely love what their family does and their parents predict that it won’t be very long before the kids will be running the show. They know and understand so much about natural farming, and get just as excited as their parents do about seeing fungi at the base of a plant, or chooks catching bugs in cow dung.

This kind of farming breeds bright-eyed, observant and engaged children and the girls are three shining examples. Hannah, Laura and Megan are their parents’ greatest achievement and seem destined to take regenerative farming to the next level as they grow older.
