Tasmanian tree change a success

A weekend getaway to the mountains sparked a major life change for Brisbane couple Kim and Daniel Croker.

"I came home and said, 'Why are we waiting to win the lotto to live our dream? Let's just do it,'" Ms Croker said.

At the time, she was commuting three hours a day to the Gold Coast for work, while her husband Daniel was spending long hours in the lab as a dementia research academic.

The long-time foodies decided to give up their careers and buy a farm in northern Tasmania to produce free-range pork.

Three years later, the enterprise has proven a success, with demand outstripping supply and the couple now living entirely on income generated from the farm.
