All Foods Farm is situated in Buffalo, South Gippsland , Victoria. The farm has been operating since 2004 and is run on sustainable agriculture and permaculture principles, with emphasis on organically grown, fresh produce. As sustainable property we grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, mostly as older styles and heritage varieties. With a mixed orchard of apples, pears, stone fruits and berries we supply our customers with fresh, seasonal produce that they rarely get to experience when shopping at any large scale supermarket. In the picking season for fruit we attend local Farmers markets. Our current project is establishing our shop frontage directly from the property.  We are a bit more than a hobby farm, but not quite  a commercial farm.

I currently work at a utilities company and it's helped me to learn that I love working outside in the fresh air and getting exercise as I work. I want to spend more time with plants and animals and learn more about how to look after them, specifically ducks and goats if possible -- I'd be interested in owning both someday, but want some hands-on experience with them first. I grew up with chickens and a horse. My parents used to make their own grape juices, applesauce, fruit preserves, bread, ketchup, and even a syrup made with bark from a hickory tree! I'm interested in doing more sustainable cooking, eating, and preserving, and working with ingredients from the soil to the table. When I was in Singapore a few months ago I visited a bar that uses as many local ingredients as possible to design cocktails native to the area, such as jackfruit or hibiscus flavoured drinks. They also used locally-sourced products to make their coasters, cups, and most other things in the bar! I really admire that philosophy.

Skills I Want to Learn:
I traveled alone to Australia for two different reasons. First I would like to learn English fluently and to experience interesting conversation on a daily basis and connect the language to memories and people instead of text books. The other reason is that I just want to be away from home and my comfort zone. I want to discover new people, a different culture and new habits. Get to know other perspectives and ways of live. Just traveling to a new country seems not enough. You have to get to know people first in order to understand them better. Hostels are not cheap in the long run and you get to know a lot of people but often only superficially and for short periods of time. With WWOOF I hope to come to a new place and immerse myself in your world. To work, get to know people and gain new experiences.

We are on a 100 yr old Apple Orchard in the stunning Blue Mountains. We have 8000 trees and 80 different varieties of apples. We have also just started doing weddings and have one airbnb accommodation. I would explain our place as more of a boutique orchard. We are a small family run business. My husband Sam has been doing all the work himself but it's all getting a bit too much so we need some extra hands to help out. It's a stunning little spot with the iconic blue mountains escarpment views off the back of the property. Along with the apples we have 30 chickens, 2 Alpacas, 6 sheep and one Maremma dog. We are a friendly and warm family who are keen to get a helping hand.

I am looking for a host that will provide me with opportunities to learn more advanced farming practices and techniques for food crops and if possible animals too. I am looking for others who share a philosophy that centers around sustainable food production, a closer connection with the food we eat, and supporting our communities through agriculture. I am looking to work hard and play hard. I take pride in my ability to learn quickly, put in long hours of physical labor and complete my work efficiently. And when the work day is done I enjoy connecting with people and sharing experiences over some home cooked food.

opportunity to support an industry I believe in ... As a result of working in the organic industry and my environment studies I have become increasingly aware of issues relating to lifestyle.. in particular relating to health and fitness as well as various aspects relating to the food chain or rather costs imputs and energy required to produce food in a sustainable manner which is consistent with health of humans and our environment .. This has given me a greater appreciation of the costs of production .. not to mention the benefits of consuming food that has been produced .. In this regard, now that i have a window of opportunity to be able to spend time at the primary producer level as well as giving a little back to the organic industry ..
