We are developing a sustainable enterprise producing high quality sulphur-free dried fruit using solar heat in an innovative dryer that we have invented and developed. We specialise in drying locally produced apples, pears and stone fruit. Our location is the picturesque Adelaide Hills where we can give you the opportunity to experience the Aussie small town lifestyle and a variety of work opportunities. These centre around the drying process and include collecting fruit from local orchardists, preparing it for the dryer and selling at local farmers markets. The dryer is mobile and is used at our base in and on location with the growers. There are also opportunities to contribute to gardening and property maintenance. Work can be consolidated to allow full days off for exploring. We have bikes you can borrow and there is a regular bus service to Adelaide. Accommodation is in our home and we enjoy a varied diet. Vegetarians and other special diets can happily be accommodated and you will be able to cook for yourself if you wish.

We sign for 2nd year working visa applications.

We are looking for a helper, or two, until early June 2015. Closed June-Sept.
