Update June 2020. We are looking for a couple who don't mind some hard work to help with some fencing and firewood collection along with other orchard and general farm activities.

Farmstay with guest cottage. Close to beaches, national park and caves. Located in Karridale area between Margaret River and Augusta.

The homestead and cottage are set in a mixed orchard and vege gardens. We have a large house with tropical fruit, a small sheep flock, geese, ducks, free range chickens that live in a mobile chicken tractor, and a small aquaponics system with silver perch. There are extensive landscaped grounds, with mainly edible species, plus bamboos and flowers (for the bees).
Our top quality accomodation is a cosy self contained 1 bedroom cottage.
We are located close to the pristine Hamelin Bay beach, where you can see the stingrays and cool in the sparkling ocean. Walk across the road to karri forests trails and the world renowned Jewel Cave.
The hosts are an extended family of 3 generations. There is always lots to do to help out around the property ranging from feeding animals, orchard maintenance, collecting wood, landscaping, growing and harvesting veges, nursery work, beekeeping, general jobs around the farm, cleaning and occasional small construction projects. Seasonally there is harvesting and preserving food and we are particularly interested in people who would like to share a love of cooking and preparing food from around the world.
Wildlife abounds particularly a wide range of birds, frogs and kangaroos.
We have self contained accomodation available in exchange for 3-4 hours. A lot of our food is grown on the farm.
