Meet the Locals at our Cattle Station in Queensland
Lyn and Carl
Lyn and Carl are the owner and managers at Myella and are passionate about everything that happens here at our Cattle Station in Queensland.
Both lovers of the land the animals especially dogs and cattle, music and life. Lyn does most of the pink jobs e.g. cleaning and caring for Olive and feeding the family. While Carl does most of the blue jobs, fixing fences and water. They both love cattle work and making a positive difference to the land with their regenerative farming practices.
Lyn likes to be creative and cycling and Carl is a bit of a foodie and his quad and loves a chat about all things.
Carl and Lyn got engaged at the Myella sunset point.
Olive and Peter Eather
Olive is a local farm girl and she is Lyn's Mum and grew up on a neighbouring cattle station. Sadly, Peter passed away in 2019 aged 86 years, they were married for 55 years.
Much of the infrastructure is a legacy of Peter's contribution to the farm stay and Olive's organisational skills have created many of the systems plus her recipes are used daily.
Peter and Olive have three children and two grand children. Olive is as tough as nails and loves to work. Although now in her 70's and a bit forgetful she continues to be a valuable member of the team. Olive does a lot of behind the scenes jobs but is also great to have a chat with .https://fundraising.dementia.org.au/fundraisers/lyneather
Ask Olive about her goats and how they pulled a cart with and transported the cream from their dairy and cattle station.
She also enjoys sharing stories of how she and her siblings rode her horse 8 miles to get to the Baralaba State School.
