We have a 40 acre horse agistment farm and also grow and sell fruit and vegetables with which we make delicious meals, incorporating much of the food we grow, for us and our wwoofers to eat,. Most of the work is with the fruit and vegetables as the horse owners mostly look after their own horses.
Wwoofers become part of our family and we are still in contact with many of our past wwoofers.
In December there will be varied work. With fruit and vegetables this may include planting, picking, watering, weeding, netting, fertilizing and fruit and vegetable preserving. With horses this may include monitoring horses, moving horses too new paddocks, and putting fly veils on and off. There are also general farm maintenance jobs such as fixing fences and farm equipment, maintaining arena and putting in gates. Other jobs as they occur.
Our wwoofers are taken out in the area and also have the use of bikes. We visit Wilson’s Promontory or Phillip Island with with our wwoofers during their stay.
