RING A RING OF ROSIES

RING A RING OF ROSIES

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 16/01/2015

Once upon a time on a farm in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula, there lived three saddleback pigs named Rosie, Rosie and Rosie.  The farm was called Benton Rise and it belonged to Ryan and Deb.

Thirteen months ago Ryan Sharpley and partner Deb (and the three kids) were living in Ringwood and thinking vaguely about the “country life” when they got a call from a friend to say she had seen a property for sale in Tuerong.  Within 4 days, they had bought the 3 acres of heaven with a small orchard and vegie plot and a 100 year old 2 bedroom house with original carpets!  The next week it was Christmas.

Goin' on a Truffle Hunt....

Goin' on a Truffle Hunt....

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 21/07/2014

A brisk fresh morning in late winter sees a small group of rugged up people pile into a plush vehicle and be whisked away to a secret location to seek 'black gold'.  They are, of course, the Truffle Hunters.  While real gold hunting may involve a metal detector, this group has the services of a rather handsome dog named Thomas.
