Journal

Hi! My name is Pip Smith. Together with my husband Norm and our 5 children, we are the current custodians of our property called ‘Glenwood’. I hope you enjoy reading my journal - tales into country life in Australia, behind the scenes of our brand and insights into sustainable and ethical Merino farming.

Collection One - Paper Daisy

What better inspiration for our first collection of limited edition Merino scarves than the plants that grow at “Glenwood"!

A Trip to Tassy

A Trip to Tassy

We are currently on a farm near a little town called Cressie in Tasmania. It is also lovely and cool (well probably what the Tasmanians call warm) which I am loving, wearing jeans, a t-shirt and a Woolerina cardi.

Wildlife Rescue at Glenwood

Wildlife Rescue at Glenwood

It has been like an episode of Wildlife Rescue this week at Glenwood. Today I found a tiny sugar glider in the garden that must have fallen out of a tree. Steve Irwin would have been proud as I got a ladder and found a nice new home for “Cyril” in a big tree away from the house.

Burrs & Rain

Burrs & Rain

Norm and Frank have been chipping Bathurst Burrs which grow a dime a dozen especially when it rains. I remember my Dad used to pay us 1 cent a burr when we were growing up and earning about $4 for the day. I am not sure our kids would do it for 1 cent a burr nowadays!
