Greetings Helpxers!

We are a family farm in Kulin, WA specializing in growing mixed cereal crops, and sheep. We run Dorper and White Dorper sheep in a Holistic grazing environment. We have chickens which are free range and produce eggs for our house.

We have 4 dogs which a friendly and very active.

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 and making sure the chickens have food and water
- Helping around the house yard to keep it tidy
- Some cooking and cleaning
- cleaning water troughs so sheep have fresh water to drink
-And, other varied animal husbandry tasks.

Additional information:

-Internet access is very restricted because of our location, therefore internet access is available in town at the resource center. We strongly suggest you bring a suitable phone, with a Telstra connection and internet plan.

-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 have a lovely 2 bedroom cottage for volunteers, and meals are also provided. You may need to share the cottage with other staff who are employed on the farm at the time, however we do our best to give people some privacy and request that everyone on the farm treats each other in a respectful manner.

- 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!
