Hello, holà, hallo, bonjour, ciao!

Are you willing to learn or know more about sustainable veggies growing? Does food matter to you? You don't mind getting your hands dirty? If so, you will be at the right place with us.

We grow many summer vegetables, fruits and grapes using various organic methods, a true foodies paradise.

At the moment, we need help with various projects such as renovation/building, looking after our 3y,5o boy and help in the house with general chores. A fair bit of gardening work and veg picking will be needed too.

The farm is a family run operation which needs all year long help with picking, gardening (including weeding), chicken feeding, vineyard and winemaking and small construction jobs as well as cleaning.

As hosts we offer full accommodation with us in our home, you will have your own bedroom and we share lunch together after a good morning work. You will also be able to benefit from the picking of our organically grown garden produce. Generally we expect 4 hours minimum a day every day you stay but can be flexible with whole days off. Minimum stay is 1 week, preferably 2 weeks or more for the right HelpXers. :)

Please note that due to the new government policy regarding Woofing, we are unfortunately not able to sign you off for the 2nd year visa.

We are located in a beautiful and peaceful place, very close to Hamelin Bay and the amazing Boranup Karri Forest, in the middle of picturesque vineyards and not far away from the Blackwood River. Of course, it's preferable to have your own vehicle to explore and enjoy the surroundings of the Margaret River region such as the Cape Leeuwin or the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and its famous caves, Redgate beach or Prevelly, etc. Plenty of activities are waiting for you like fishing, surfing, food, wine and beer tastings, kayaking, walking or biking on nature trails, cultural driving escapes, whale watching, swimming and snorkelling...

Please feel free to contact us with any questions if you are interested to know more about your possible stay with us. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Ps: we are multilingual, also speaking French, Italian and German.

Important note: we enjoy hosting reliable and motivated individuals. Sadly, we've had several HelpXers say they're coming but then not arrive, often last minute. Please be aware that if you commit to come, we will have made plans for your stay. So if you don't come, everyone misses an opportunity! Thank you for your understanding.
