About The Redgens of Redford

A family farm in the 1950s

This is the story of my family's life on our mixed farm in Queensland in the 1950s. My story reflects on a period of Australia's history where, in the absence of modern technology, lateral-thinking, stubbornness, and hard work were the order of the day.
