Short Property Description
We have a small 15 acre hobby farm with direct access to the beautiful Huon River. We’ve recently started our setup and looking forward to having a self sustaining life in our semi retirement. There are loads of different jobs that need to be done.
Full Property Description
There is a very large veggie patch, with a second poly tunnel with raised bed in the making. We have 16 sheep and lambs, 2 steers, 1 cow and calf, plus numerous chickens and ‘Trevor’ the turkey. Oh, and our dog ‘Janet’.
We also have a two bedroom Airbnb cottage on the property, that we maintain and manage.
Organic/Biological methods we use
We are commited to using permaculture in our vegetable patches. We are also discovering traditional ways of cooking, preserving, and fermenting food.
Our animals are raised in the most free range way possible. We want them to have a happy, healthy life.
We would prefer WWOOFERS to have their own work clothes & safety shoes. We’re also looking for WWOOFERS who are happy to put in a solid work effort, plus show some initiative. We are flexible with times you would like to work, but we would like a minimum of 25 hrs hard work with another 10hrs lighter work per week. You will have you’re own comfortable room and bathroom and you will be fed very well. If you like cooking I love help in the kitchen took

Why I became a WWOOF Host
We would love to share setting up our self sustainable life with others. I enjoy cooking from scratch (even milling my own flour) and Paul enjoys growing stuff and raising a few animals. We’d love some help (about 4hrs per day) with getting our land to be more productive and looking nice for our Airbnb guests.
