‘Finding beauty in everyday life’
Farmhouse on Nubba is a quaint shop situated on ‘Pindari’, a beautiful farm located in southern New South Wales, Australia offering acres of rich, fertile soil with peaceful views across rolling countryside.
In addition to husband and wife team, Rachael & Thomas Jubb, the farm is home to shorthorn cattle, corriedale sheep, large white and landrace pigs, a plethora of poultry, horses, a lone alpaca, and a pack of very spoilt working dogs.
The farm belonged to Rachael’s parents – both passionate farmers with a love of the land. Growing up both Rachael and Thomas wanted to be farmers and their parents fostered their love of the land and encouraged them to dream. Tragically, Rachael lost her father at a young age and the family left the farm to be closer to family in the States.
At the age of 20 Rachael moved back to Australia and her rural roots – the only one out of seven siblings drawn to life on the land. Rachael lived on her own on the farm for 5 years before meeting Thomas and ‘felt like it was meant to be’.
The couple bought the farm from Rachael’s mum and the hard work really began working the land and building a life in the farmhouse together – their farm steadily growing over the years.
The couple have a contracting business and have hay making, harvesting and sowing equipment. The farm produces grass-fed beef, lamb and free range pork (www.jubbandco.com.au), as well as some extra goodies like cheese, butter, jams, and relish. Rachel also grows her own seasonal veggies in a 2-acre vegetable patch and runs country clothing line, The Nubba Co (www.thenubbaco.com.au) offering classic country clothing with a chic twist.
Their farm shop showcases seasonal fresh produce from the farm alongside local products from friends, neighbours and the community. Rachael loves to cook, sew and garden and plans to create rustic homestead wares for the shop as well as stocking from other local and small Australian businesses.
Rachael spends any spare time in her veggie garden, growing seasonal produce and tending the orchard that has been there since her childhood. Plans are blooming for a cottage garden in the style of her mother’s original one – bursting with colourful flowers including roses, lavender, daisies, salvia and saltbush.
