Interested in simple living aimed at self reliancy using permaculture principles? Keen to learn about organic gardening and animal husbandry? Want to have a try milking a cow or some goats? And then learn with us about natural artisan cheese making. Maybe even give a hand with some butchery and bacon-making? Want to explore alternative/appropriate technologies to get away from the grid? Well come help us in our exciting post-house fire adventure! We are certainly "roughing it" by most standards, but we still eat well and enjoy what we're doing. We have a cozy caravan for you, but we dont have electricity or internet!

We are a small family living on a beautiful, almost idyllic sort of story-book farm setting. We have a 10 year old son and an 8 year old daughter. We have heaps of animals - goats, cows, chickens, ducks, geese, pigeons, cats, dogs - and a constant stream of both mundane and super exciting projects on the go to keep us all pretty busy. We source the majority of our produce from the farm and all our meat and eggs. The dairy/eggs/meat are core parts of our diet, so this property may not suit vegans/vegetarians but if you are really interested we can accommodate with your help and if you eat eggs and dairy it should be easy. While there is always heaps to do, there is simultaneously heaps to learn.
