We operate a diverse Certified Naturally Farmed, agro-ecological system which is designed to maximize production whilst improving fertility and being extremely environmentally friendly. We produce eggs, beef, lamb, pork and a few meat chickens as well as some fruit and vegetables, hay, grain and when we have time olives and olive oil.

We use Biological, Biodynamic, Organic, Permaculture, Holistic and Naturopathic practices; we adapt and run the farm based on observation, trial and intuition.
We’re looking for volunteers who are interested in learning about natural farming. Who are interested in practising and understanding the science behind natural farming, and who are looking for a fair exchange for their efforts, with cultural, educational, accommodation and culinary benefits.

A typical day would include preparing and feeding the chickens their breakfast, after you've had yours. Afterwards you’ll have time to either pursue your own interests or engage in farm activities, such as stress free animal handling, vegetable and fruit gardening and other animal husbandry tasks. After a hearty lunch, egg collection and sorting commences. Your day can end there with time to explore or again you can engage in other farm activities. An offer of help will seldom be turned down. A communal family dinner ends the day, with time to ask any questions and highlight upcoming farm tasks and events.

Accommodation is available in the family house or in the air conditioned farm living quarters. We can accommodate couples or friends travelling together.

We eat a healthy varied mainly organic diet, including meat and vegetables with the occasional home baked cake for good measure.

We value our health and your health so would humbly request no smoking on the property.

Cris & Lee-Anne
