At the beginning of the year we moved to the family farm after a year travelling in the UK/ Europe and prior to that living in Western Australia.
The farm has been in the family for 100 years and currently supports 4 families, this includes 3 generations with grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and 2 very busy 3 year olds and 2 babies!

We have recently moved into a large old farm house closer to the main farm and have lots of work to do in the garden! The goal is to be self sufficient in a few years time! We also have plans involving some tourism ventures in the future so there is lots to keep busy with!

In exchange for your labour you will be hosted with enthusiasm and a comfy room and all meals provided.

There is always plenty of work on the farm although sometimes this involves longer days but there is plenty of flexibility. The priority for helpers is at our home/garden but there will also be the opportunity to participate in the farm activities if you're interested. These include working with cattle in the yards, mustering in the forest, milking the cows, riding horses, motorbikes, tractors, lots of fixing things, helping with veggie gardens....lots of variety. It's a busy, vibrant place and we have lots of knowledge and connections across Australia so really happy to help with any travel plans. Would suit someone seeking some time out from backpacker scene, creative, easy going and happy to hang out with a busy three year old (and busy farm). Collection and transport can readily be arranged from Toowoomba, Dalby or Chinchillaand.

Anyone with knowledge or interest in organic gardening, permaculture and garden design or just lots of enthusiasm would be most welcome! It's a beautiful spot and we are very excited about creating a special place!

Aggie, Emile, Digby and Matilda
