We live 5 minutes walk away from Oyster Cove which lies within the D'Entrecasteaux Channel. We have a small market garden with a variety of vegetables that we sell locally, and to restaurants in Hobart. We also have a food truck that we use to cater for private functions and pop-up dinners around Hobart where we cook delicious meals using our produce.

There are 3 of us (including our 18yo son) living in a strawbale house that we built ourselves. Food is a big focus in our lives - we eat well from our produce (see our website and Instagram for more details). When we are not gardening, cooking or eating we love to swim in Oyster Cove, mountain bike (in the nearby reserve), bushwalk and travel

The helpers we like the best are enthusiastic, hardworkers who have a genuine interest in food - how it's produced and prepared. You become part of our family when you stay with us - we work, eat and hang out together.

We have a small bedroom and a cute, cabin for accommodation. The beds are comfortable and all bedding is provided. Suits a couple or a solo traveller.

Helpers would work in the gardens doing weeding, harvesting, planting, preserving, animal feeding, cooking, helping in the food truck, cleaning. There may also be some building jobs to be done.

We expect you to work 4 hours farm work a day, 6 days each week (can be flexible) doing varied tasks. You would also help in preparing our shared meals (extra to the 4 hours - usually about 1 hour per day). In return, you will get accommodation, 3 meals and use of the internet.

Non-smokers only! Also, we can cater to vegetarians.
