I joined WWOOF because: 1. I refuse to be just a normal tourist, running around, photographing things and rushing on. So I want to experience Australia from the australian point of view. 2. I want to learn new things and skills, whether farming practices or skills with tools or animals. I am just open to anything.

We joined wwoofing because it's the one oft he best way to combine traveling with working. Furthermore I like the way of giving and taking from each other in the wwoofing experience. We wwoofed for a while in New Zealand and we had very good experiences. Also it is beautiful to learn more about the life of the native people and to learn more about the culture. Even if we love to be on the road it's nice to have from time to time a little home and to be a part of a family/ community. Another reason why we joined wwoofing is that you can learn from other people how they life or doing their garden. We love to work with or in the nature and to do active work. To learn is an mind opener and we really like to be more keen on in the self-supporter lifestyle.

City/Town: Tamworth
Farming Methods: Biodynamic
Accommodation Type: In Our Home
Our farm is located 33km west of Tamworth NSW, on 460 acres. It is a beautiful part of NSW, a few hours inland from the coast and about 5 hours north of Sydney, 7 hours south of Brisbane. We live at the end of a dirt road on the top of a hill with no neighbours in site, this really is “country Australia!”. We breed horses and farm beef cattle. Our focus is on regenerative agriculture - using sustainable farming practises to improve and regenerate soils and the environment, and enhance productivity. We have owned our farm for 8 years and are building new infrastructure to improve it, including fencing and water troughs. We have around 30 horses at most times with several foals born each year. We breed quarter horses, that we then break in and train for the western sport of “cutting”, which involves working cows. You can check out our Facebook page Three Leaf Stud to see more about our horses. Rafe competes in cutting and reined cow horse when he has time, and I compete in the English disciplines of Eventing, show jumping, and dressage. So we have a range of horses, not just quarter horses, also thoroughbreds and warmbloods. Depending on the time of year, you may experience foaling season, starting horses under saddle, or horse shows. If you are a competent rider you may have the chance to ride regularly,  however this can’t be guaranteed until we see your skills in practice! A typical day here involves feeding and checking all the horses twice a day, checking water troughs and fence lines, and feeding cattle. We operate a hydroponic fodder factory sprouting barley seeds for our cattle, so seeding this, cleaning it and feeding out the fodder is a daily process. We ride most days and then the tasks vary from day to day, sometimes it’s fencing, or helping build something, fixing something, gardening, every day is different! Our house is quite modern and air conditioned, you will have your own room in our house with a beautiful view and bathroom, WiFi. We expect you to be clean and tidy and to help with things like doing the dishes, we cook and eat a mixed diet with meat and vegetables... and chocolate. We are both 40, no kids, friendly labrador called BenDog and a cool stable cat called BobCat. We treat people as we expect to be treated, and believe that in life, you get back what you put in!

Beautiful 300 acre farm which we run wool sheep, alpaca, house cows, horses, chickens and bees. Although we've been farming all our lives, we've only been hon this farm for a few years so we are still setting up. We are also growing vegetables and setting up an orchard. With the current situation we are setting up to grow additional vegetables to assist a local soup kitchen.  We are  working on improving our land through revegetating and addressing erosion. We love our farming lifestyle and are always looking to enjoy and improve our farm. We use little chemicals or none and are old fashioned in how we view our farm and work. We enjoy our horses and training our working dogs.  We believe in dignity and respect for all, the animals, the land and the people.

It’s a safe way meet the people I enjoy meeting. I love travelling but not into the drinking partying life style that gets portrayed as backpacking. I want to learn and enrich my life with people and skill I learn and stories I can tell.

We moved in to this 100 acre property, situated between Pemberton and Northcliffe in the South West of Western Australia, at the end of last year. It is surrounded by stunning karri forrest and on the crossing of the Bibbulmun walking trail and the Munda Biddi cycling trail. I fell in love with this area whilst mountain biking the Munda Biddi and consider it the most beautiful forest area in WA, so couldn't resist the opportunity to come and live here when this property came on the market. We come from Europe, David from the UK and Annie from Belgium and we have traveled extensively and done a lot of trekking in the Himalayas,  New Zealand, France and Spain. But this country and forest is what we totally fell in love with. There are already very productive netted orchards and also many ponds and a lake for aquaculture. We have introduced bees and there are plenty of marron, the largest freshwater crayfish in the world and pretty tasty. We also have 7 cattle, 7 sheep, 6 chickens, and a couple of worm farms. Plenty of water is also a bonus in this country. We've got the veggie garden started and have plenty of carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, beans, chard, etc. Projects include: At this stage, from mid-May 2020, we want to focus on planting lots of trees, so you will be able to help create a lasting benefit for the future. You need to be fit as there will be lots of digging involved. Other ongoing projects: Constructing and maintaining permaculture gardens and orchards, picking berries and fruit. Planting native flowering plants to introduce bees, propagating and seeding vegetables. Powerful new mulcher has arrived and we will be doing plenty of compost making as well as mulching the gardens and laying new gardens around the cottages. Marron and fish ponds need netting fixed and we want to look at further possibilities for aquaculture. Chickens need to get food sources established, so they have more opportunities to browse. vermiculture - we love worm juice for our gardens. Woodworking shed is getting organised and with a good supply of machinery, upgrading the cottages is next : making steps, verandahs and then an outdoor kitchen/entertaining area, etc. Looking after guests in several cottages on the property and chopping firewood to build up the winter supply is also ongoing. In the kitchen, we love our fermenting: tasty kombucha with the berries that we have picked and frozen or collecting fresh from the orchard; kefir to use with our cereal in the morning. We bake our own buns and make bread with the bread machine.

I joined WWOOF for two main reasons. First, in my study of environmental science and climate change, I've realized how large a role agriculture plays in carbon emissions, especially through land use changes, in a way that is often overlooked. Given the time I have, I wanted to experience a more in depth perspective into the agricultural industry. Second, I spent half of my 3rd year of high school at a selective semester program on a farm in Vermont (the Mountain School), and really loved the experience. I was able to better understand the context of my food and the implications of the food choices I make.

I have joined wwoof to meet the people who are interested in me and my journey round Australia as much as I am interested in their story. What has bought you to this point? I believe that travel should not just be for the wealthy and see the woof scheme as a great facilitator in dispanding that myth. I believe that the scheme is about good experiences and interactions not just cheap labour. I will work hard but only if I think the attitude and outlook of the host is viewed as a reciprocal and fair exchange. happy to work 5 hours a day on average with days off to enjoy the local area and surroundings. But the work must be varied and interesting, that being said I do know the nature of a fair days work as have worked hard my whole life. I am happy to undertake tree work this would be at a reduced rate, but enough to cover my skill set and maintenance of my gear. If this is of interest let me know.

Accommodation Type: In Our Home
We are a family home in the Byron Hinterland area (Tintenbar). 18 acres with a beautiful running creek. We have cows, Llamas, Chickens and a dog. We also have 3 year old son who is incredibly social so enjoying the company of children is a must. We are new to this home and are in the stages of cleaning up the grounds to allow the established citrus trees to grow and create the vision we have for this beautiful property. Large scale vegetable gardens will be going in as well as organic herb gardens. We are on tank water so need to be mindful of this during the process as we are in a drought at present. General upkeep of the home and grounds is what we need help with as well as some basic landscaping work anyone with energy and enthusiasm could help with. I am a nutritionist and my husband a builder, we eat organic food wherever possible and have a full filtration system on the entire house for water. Your own room and bathroom would be provided.

I'm travelling with WWOOF in order to learn about sustainable and organic farming in different parts of the world, travel, and learn about places by actually living there. My work at school got me interested in both the actual work of and the politics/economics of farming and how people actually live on farms, and I knew the best way to learn was to experience the lifestyle for myself. Also, I've always been a terrible tourist and preferred meeting people and working somewhere rather than just go from museum to museum.
