New boutique doggy farmstay – Oaktree Pups

 

By Samantha Elley

Young Audrey ‘Heifer’-burn was recovering with her hours old litter of seven pups when The Northern Rivers Times visited at her home Oaktree Pups at Fairy Hill.

The very tired schnoodle mum (cross between a schnauser and a poodle) had just delivered her second litter for breeders Tim and Rachel Carson.

“We called her Audrey Heiferburn because when she was born, she was very heavy for a schnoodle pup,” laughed Rachel.

“She was the first pup from the first litter of our dog Bonnie.”

The Carsons also have Evie, Daphnie and Howie to complete their family of fur babies.

Four of Audrey’s pups have already been reserved for buyers who are willing to pay over $4,000 for one of the little cuties.

“They are very popular therapy dogs, so are good for owners with mental health issues,” said Rachel.

“They can settle you and are good companions.

“And they are great hypo-allergenic dogs as they have hair, not fur, so they are good for people with allergies.”

Not only do Rachel and Tim breed dogs, but they have just started up their own dog farmstay at their home.

“We have got all the approvals and are now getting the word out,” said Rachel.

The property is surrounded by 1.25 acres of mature gardens, secure fencing and gates which provide an engaging space for holidaying dogs to enjoy.

“While you embark on your own well-deserved holiday, your furry friend can embark on their own delightful getaway,” the website states.

“We charge $60 per day, if you are bringing your own food for your pet,” said Rachel.

“Or $70 per day if we provide the food.”

Well-behaved small and medium-sized dogs would be most suited to Oaktree Pups, according to Rachel.

“I call them ‘Netflix dogs’,” laughed Rachel.

“We don’t have kennels, as we have a cosy puppy room for them to sleep in.”

To ensure a harmonious environment for all dogs that stay at Oaktree Pups, a temperament assessment  is undertaken to highlight their compatibility as non-aggressive dogs.

Bringing the Spirit of Beef Week to Whiddon Casino: Residents vs. Chefs Cook-Off!

Whiddon, a regional aged care provider, is embracing the spirit of Casino Beef Week, a celebration of Australia’s beef industry and rural heritage, by hosting a unique culinary challenge at its Casino Residential Care home on Wednesday, May 22nd.
In this friendly competition, the skilled chefs of Whiddon will go head-to-head against the eager residents, who bring years of cooking experience to the table.
The Cook-Off will unfold at the Whiddon Casino BBQ area, where marquees will be set up for the event.
Schedule:
• 10:00 AM: Whiddon Casino Coffee Club
• 11:30 AM: BBQs prepared for Whiddon Casino Cook-Off
• 12:00 PM: Official commencement of the Whiddon Casino Cook-Off!
During and after the Cook-Off, both participating staff and residents will be available for media interviews and comments.
At Whiddon, chefs often craft special meals to mark significant events or simply to delight residents who have specific cravings. According to Whiddon Area Chef Jason Watterson, the outdated stereotypes about food in aged care are far from accurate.
“Our team is continuously exploring innovative ways to serve nutritious meals made from locally sourced, high-quality ingredients, freshly prepared at our care homes every day,” Jason explains.
He emphasizes the importance of relationship-based care, stating, “The bonds formed around the kitchen table are truly special.”
Recognizing the significance of food for residents transitioning into care, Whiddon has implemented several tailored practices and programs across its 23 Residential Aged Care homes. These include homestyle kitchens, foodie groups, and cooking clubs.
For the Cook-Off, Whiddon is committed to sourcing local produce, thereby supporting the Richmond Valley and Northern Rivers community.
