Our farm is in a hidden valley surrounded by National parks. We use organic and permaculture principles and need help to produce food. Milk and cheese from our herd of dairy goats, vegetables and fruit from our gardens and eggs from free range chooks. We try to work along side of the abundant wildlife.

Guests stay in a self contained cabin but have meals with us in our underground house. Our original house was destroyed in the 2009 bush fires and our architect son designed us a very energy efficient building that could cope with disasters. We eat mostly the food we grow and can cater for vegans and vegetarians.

Help is required to care for the animals and land typically from 9am-1pm and in the evening feeding time. Work may involve preparation for educational workshops and events.

Minimum stay one week, though longer stays can be negotiated. We take trips to local interest points such as the waterfalls and wineries and are happy to share our extensive experience of living this lifestyle.
