About

"To live a simple life takes a lot of work"    

                                                                  Lyall Burgoyne

Lyall and his wife, Susie, have lived for more than 20 years on just under two acres at Mount Vincent. 

They have completely transformed the property from an empty field to a thriving garden and orchard full of citrus trees, figs, avocados, stone fruit, nuts and more.

They also have 42 raised garden beds all in production. 

Along with raising children and copious produce- they offer accomodation. 

The property is now called Sevasti's Hideaway. 

Join us on Saturday 23rd April for a tour of this amazing property and find out why it's called Sevasti's Hideaway
