Springview Eco Farm, Wagga Wagga
Each day, Pennie Scott marvels at the beauty of the 65 hectares she calls home, saying she is honoured to be joint custodian, with partner Alan Reid, of Springview Eco-Farm, located in the hills southwest of Wagga Wagga.
Pennie, also known as the Bush Goddess, and Alan have owned Springview for almost two years. The beautiful property is considered to be geologically ancient and comprises four ecosystems. The farm is also off the grid with power provided by solar panels and photovoltaic batteries.
The pair are gracious hosts who regularly open their home to visitors from around the world who want to connect with nature, learn about growing wholesome and chemical-free foods, breeding happy and confident animals, and about the native flora, fauna, and geology.
Regular events and workshops on many topics are held at the farm and feasts are created from locally sourced ingredients, including their own Bush Goddess Paddock Pork. Pennie and Alan developed a small-scale food production and biological pig breeding program to fulfil their mission of growing food and sustain land holistically and organically.
An ardently passionate food activist, Pennie hopes that one day all Australians will have access to the highest quality and ethically produced food from people they know and trust.
