Greetings Helpxers!

We are a family farm in Kulin, WA specializing in growing mixed cereal crops, and raising poultry and sheep. We run Dorper and White Dorper sheep in a Holistic grazing environment. We have a free range / open range egg production business.

We sell our produce through Farmers Markets in Perth and Helpers have the opportunity to help at the market, and see the farm produce go directly to the customer. We also sell to gourmet butcher shops in Perth and the general market.

We have planted approximately 700,000 trees over the last 5 years to provide better grazing and lambing conditions for sheep and to rehabilitate land. We are continually monitoring and adjusting our farming practices to stay focused on soil health, holistic outcomes and low stress stock handling.

Every day tasks vary and would include the following:

-Tree and soil conservation.
-Collecting eggs
-Cleaning, inspecting, and packing eggs that will eventually be sold in the farmers market.
-Making sure sheep, chickens and alpaca have access to water, food and vitamins.
-And, other varied animal husbandry tasks involving our sheep and poultry.

Additional information:

-Internet access is very restricted because of our location, therefore internet access is available in town at the resource center. We can discuss internet usage further once you arrive.

-The town of Kulin is just 3 hours south of Perth. If you log on to the TRANSWA site you can look up the bus schedule to and from Perth. If we are in Perth for the farmers market or just visiting family then we are happy to give you a lift to our home.

-We are able to sign for 2nd year work/holiday visas.

- We have a lovely 2 bedroom cottage for volunteers so privacy is not an issue, and meals are also provided.

- We are looking for volunteers who can stay with our family for a minimum of one month.

We welcome volunteers with an enthusiasm for the natural environment, who are open to a variety of work while getting away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Thank you for reading and we hope to hear from you soon!
