We run a small beef cattle farm in the Barossa Valley as well as a guesthouse with gardens, 36 tree fruit orchard plus a vegetable garden.

We are an easy going family of four with two teenage children plus a couple of Golden Retreivers.

When we are not running the guesthouse, we are working the farm and gardens. The cattle are Black Angus plus a couple of stragglers from when we ran a vealer production unit. Vealer production in Australia is nothing like that of Europe.

We are minimum intervention farmers but use a lot of cell grazing. Much of our thinking comes from people like Andre Voisin and Joel Salatin. We are in the process of building an egg mobile.

Being in the Barossa means we are pretty passionate about our food and wine so our guests don't go hungry or thirsty!We would ask that you understand that we are not in a position to cater for vegetarians.

The work here is varied but not difficult. Farm work can include moving cattle, fencing and cleaning water troughs. Lots of gardening in our garden and orchard with pruning, planting and irrigation. Plus some work in the guesthouse.

We would suggest that you consider having clothes and footwear that is suitable for farm work as the manual work we sometimes do is tough on regular clothes.
