    Short Property Description

    Belongabill is 15kms north of Pinnaroo. We are 6km’s from the SA/VIC border, on the shortest Adelaide-Sydney route, near beautiful national parks that you shouldn’t miss! We are a mixed grains/sheep farm. We run about 1,000 Merino sheep, for wool and meat.  Our home is surrounded by an extensive P/c garden. We use ‘chook-tractors’ for weed and pest control in the ever-changing mandala vegetable garden. Other animals include pigs, dogs, horses and geese. Tasks we need help with are: B/D composting, mulching, animal care, constructing trellises and pathways, and GFM. Accommodation available in family home, or BYO. Minimum stay one week, Mixed diet, (GREAT bread, coffee and tea.) We attempt to eat something WE produce for every meal. NSI.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    We have been WWOOF hosts previously, and have many friends world-wide as a result. We initially became hosts in 2010 so our 10 year old could learn about other cultures and we would have help in our extensive new garden when we moved to this new farm. In the past we’ve shared many skills however we have also gained ideas from innovative, enthusiastic WWOOFers. Our son is now working in the town and my husband and I both lead busy lives, so we need help maintinaing the garden, animals and our permaculture vision.
