This is a large fruit tree farm on granite creek near Mareeba in the drier warm part of the Atherton Tablelands the property has been managed organically since 2004 when it was purchased as a lychee and mango farm (previous to that , tobacco was cropped on the land for many years) another 25 acres of all types of fruits (from apple to durian) and botanical rarities have been planted out since 2004 , much of it starting to come into production now. anyone interested in large scale permaculture , landcare and fruit forestry will appreciate this place
we grow a lot of ice cream bean trees for mulch and use a fair amount of woodchip around the place
accomadation varies from dorm style to semi private room

the owner runs an organic food store in Adelaide.. he is a keen fruit collector and providor .....travels frequently to the farm ..... there are always interesting people helping with the care taking of the property
if you like pruning , can use a scythe or have a trade you would be especially welcome! its really a big project and a good one so if you are motivated we would be keen to meet you .......
****** swimming spots on property are the best and have to be seen to be believed
