FMG and chef Michael van de Elzen have teamed up
From growing your own ingredients to make healthy meals to undertaking a new project, we hope to help you take advantage of the great opportunities that come with rural life.
Whether you’re looking to move out of the city, you're new to the country or looking to do more with your property, we’re here to help you with some tips and tricks to country living and how FMG can help you settle in to life outside of the city.
What works in the city doesn't always work in the country, and that's why Michael has teamed up with us.
FMG are rural specialists and know the risks you need to be covered for. We can look to insure your home, car and contents alongside your rural risks like if your animals escape and damage property, or if you've bought a few new toys like diggers and ride-on mowers that may not be covered under your usual residential insurance.
Meals from scratch
Moving out of the city means the space to grow more of your own food and be creative with your cooking. It's also an opportunity to learn more about cooking with the seasons and planting and harvesting produce at the right time of year.
Hear about Michael’s food philosophy and why cooking food from scratch is tastier, and better for you.
Moving to the country?
There are a quite a few differences between life in the city and life in the country - switching from the town water supply to water tanks, owning cats and cattle or having a bit more than just a herb garden to look after.
Michael has made the move out to a lifestyle block and has tips on how to avoid some of rural risks you may not be used to or even know about yet.
