About

Welcome to Pineapple Farmhouse — the blog where I passionately share ideas for slow and sustainable living, wholesome home cooking, a natural handmade home and cottage farmhouse style.

Join my family of four as we enjoy a simple country-coastal lifestyle in beautiful Yeppoon, Queensland.

S.L.O.W. living is emphasising a way of life that is sustainable, local, organic and whole.

My husband Justin and I aspire to one day own our very own homestead where our two spirited children; Elsie and William, can grow and thrive.

I love cooking from scratch, growing things, craft, home organisation and decorating. Over the years I have come to appreciate just how important these things are for a calm, healthful and joyful way of life.

Justin is a hunter gatherer, enjoying outdoor adventures, camping, hunting and fishing, while I am a true homebody obsessed with cottage farmhouse style, drinking tea, sewing and making things.

Questions, comments? Contact us, we’d love to hear from you.

ABOUT ME

Hi I’m Emily; the writer and photographer behind Pineapple Farmhouse.

I grew up in the leafy Western suburbs of Brisbane, Queensland and spent my childhood, with my younger sister by my side, playing in the garden, raising chickens, camping and fishing. 

My family has roots in rural South East Queensland so we often took daytrips to the countryside to visit relatives, tour quaint towns, visit country pubs and explore National Parks.

The fast pace of the city life never really appealed to me and when I met my husband, a Rockhampton local, it was an easy choice for me to move to Yeppoon in regional Queensland, where we now live with our two children.

I have always been curious about how past generations lived, managed their households, cooked, decorated and spent their leisure time. I believe we can learn so much about simple, wholesome living from our elders to create a slower, more sustainable home and lifestyle in a busy modern world.

I am also interested in holistic wellness including natural remedies, whole foods, gentle exercise, mindfulness, mediation, essential oils and self care.

My hobbies include sewing, craft and gardening and I have Pinterest boards full of new projects to try.

I am very passionate about helping others find a calmer, more contented and healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families.
