The farm is in the high country of Victoria with fantastic views of the snowy mountains 1 1/2hr away and just 15 minutes to the Murray River.
We have Creek frontage with Murray cod fishing and back onto the national parks.There is swimming, bush walks,bike riding and sight seeing and 10 mins walk to a small town or take a bike and ride into a little bigger town where there is every thing you could need.
We live on the farm with 300 beef cows and calves, pet dogs and calves and free range hens. There is lots to do such as fencing(removing the old and replacing with new),planting native trees,calving,checking,feeding and shifting cattle,gardening,cooking,getting wood,picnics in the paddocks and site seeing.
There is a four bedroom fully furnished separate house to stay in ,which is also a farm stay cottage, or stay with us where you have your own bathroom and queen size bed.
Min stay 3-4 days and you are welcome to stay longer.
We enjoy our lifestyle and try to be self sustainable with our own vegetables,eggs and meat. We love entertaining and showing our helpers around the local area, meeting all ages and different nationalities. English is not usually a problem and we can usually make ourselves understoody.
We have hosted a lot of different woofers and always enjoyed the experience.Anyone who is willing to have a go is welcome and so far all have been fantastic. Some have driven a car for the first time and even learnt to ride a motor bike,cooked a BBQ lunch in the paddock and seen calves born. Our days are always fun and rewarding and there is a different experience everyday.We provide all meals for 6 hours a day or you can work 4 hours and cook your own meals.
