We make dinners together in the common space and go on adventures together with our dogs. There is almost always someone making art or music around.

The farm sits on 2km of wild coastline with mountain views, access to endless backroads, karst limestone caves and waterfalls to explore.

There is so much to do here!

Located 50 km from town in a valley that runs north to south. Private accommodations are available, prefer a couple because of the distance to town but will take singles. Food supplied. If you like mountains, wildlife and exercise and you are interested in a true country experience this is the place to be. We start calving in March through till Mid April. For the summer we are haying, moving irrigation pipes,and cattle around. Round up beginning for weaning in November. There are tasks for all skill levels and strengths so don't be afraid to join us. Would like it if you came for a month but short stays are welcomed. We welcome any help and would like people to share their knowledge with us. No experience is necessary just enthusiasm. We start up in March for calving and run through to December.
