If you've come to our site because you're a recipient of a #HardWorkingHands skincare bundle:
Hello and Welcome!
Firstly, please know we are thinking of you and wish you courage and strength during this trying - and drying - time.
We realised we can't help your farming situation directly, but dependent on the land ourselves for our products, medicines and foods, we felt we could offer a little something that might cheer up your day. Sore, chapped hands, lips and other areas are no fun and even if we are stoical, such annoying things make hard times harder.
Please also know that some wonderful people kindly helped deliver our bundles for which we are most grateful. The bush network IS alive and well and they chose you as someone they might make smile today.
All the best to you, with love from Carol & Pauline at Paddock Pantry
100 subscriber-only words weekly on subjects we think you will find interesting - comments and questions are welcome.
Based on our practical experience, and aware your time is precious, we will opine briefly on health myths and miracles, seasonality, gardening glory and answer questions where possible.
Subjects that need longer discussion will continue on Paddock Chat or as Subscriber Only posts on special subjects.
Sharing our knowledge, often hard won, is important to us. We hope you like the result.
