Hello from Victoria, Australia

Just trying a test post to see if this works.

I live in South-East Australia in the Strzelecki ranges, 160km South-East of Melbourne.
We have grown a few batches of pastured poultry and would like to make a business of it. Lots of regulatory hurdles. There are no small-farm exemptions for poultry processing and the food police here are very strict. We also have our own cattle, dogs and a small laying flock.
