Loch Ard Gorgeous

~ Beautiful Normandy style camembert ~
You know the story about the large ship that carried a lot of wealthy people, travelling a long distance from home, with a not so happy ending? No, it’s not Titanic we’re referring to. We’re talking about Loch Ard! Loch Ard was a clipper, designed to match the pace of the larger steamships travelling the seven seas during the late 1800s. The shipping line Loch Line built these vessels, designated to travel the route between Melbourne and Liverpool in the UK. The travels did not go that great, on the way to Victoria. They hit a heavy fog which made them disoriented! Resulting in the ship brushing up on the sand bank and taking in water. The remains of the shipwreck is now government protected, and a popular tourism drawcard in Victoria!

The Benson family’s farm, L’Lubatol, has undergone major changes over the past 30 years. Most notably, the 367 acres was originally 15 paddocks, but is now subdivided into 53 milking paddocks of about 5 acres and a further 10 paddocks of smaller size for calf rearing.
