Fiona and Richard Lublow

Fiona first arrived in the Baton Valley in 1993 on a 15.2 Appaloosa mare, having traveled through the back country some 270km from Akaroa. She has traveled extensively through Europe and across the United States of America, trying her hand at a variety of jobs, including working in the Canadian Rainforest, driving double decker buses, taking photographs and offering professional counselling.  Her passion is to be out in the mountains with good company.

Richard was born on Baton Run.  His passion is sheep and beef farming and he’ll be delighted to give you a shearing demonstration and explain anything to do with wool and farming in general.  If you’re lucky he may recite some bush poetry for you.

Richard has a great sense of humour and enjoys the back country. He project managed the building of the Honeywell Hut and Shepherd’s Rest. He is also responsible for all the interesting and quirky outdoor art.  Richard farms the 1011 hectare property.

Bush Poet

Your host, Richard Lublow, whilst being a full time farmer, also performs locally and nationally as a bush poet. His stories are from the Baton Valley.

While staying in our accommodation, enjoy reading his books or put in a request for a private poetry performance.
