HISTORY OF PATCHWORK PARK...
Patchwork Park began in 1994 in South Australia's Adelaide Hills. Long before kids, Susan purchased a 20 acre sheep property with a tiny transportable home half built. Year by year, she chipped away, slowly building her horse dynasty. It was soon to be equipped with an enormous arena, stable complex, she removed all the star pickets and ring lock fencing, extended the home and developed incredible rose and agapanthus gardens.
After 23 years in the same home base, it was time to sell and move onto bigger and better...
2017 WELCOMED A NEW LIFE!
On 4th August 2017, we undertook the hectic move (without a removalist) across the border to our new home in Ballarat, Victoria. It took about 7 return trips, 6 hours each way, to get everything across!
The current home base was formerly Snake Valley Quarter Horses for 30 years with Pam and George Neal.
This outstanding property has an architectural story, along with stunning gardens and fruit orchard. The homestead combines colonial and modern touch; with stone walls, once the floors of Melbourne cattle yards, bluestone floors combined with wood stained raked ceilings.
The best part of course, our amazing indoor arena!
WORLD'S WORST DEER FARMERS...
When we purchased the property, we inherited the final few survivors of the previous owners' extensive deer farming project.
We are proudly the world's worst venison farmers; none have been slaughtered since we arrived. They are pets that enjoy grain feeds, round bales and a lazy life.
