    Short Property Description

    We are a 50 acre property located on the east coast in a suburb called Kulnura, with vibrant greenery and a tightly knit community our farm has much more to offer than just the egg, fruit and Vegetable farming. David and Tracey live on the farm with their daughter Yasmine. We have 8 dogs on the farm, 4 Maremma Puppies, 2 adults and 2 Moodles. We are located around many services and tourist attractions that are walking distance, with plenty to experience and only 1 hour from Sydney city, our farm will be a place to remember!

    Full Property Description

    Our farm consists of a house with an outdoor entertaining area, right next to it is an iconic large timber cladded working shed where all the magic happens with our egg farming.

    As you walk down the central road of the farm you will see a chicken shed to your left with 1000 hyline laying hens and on your right is the backyard where our 4 puppies sleep and play!

    Further down you have an approximate 400 sqm area of fresh herbs and vegetables that are grown as a hobby and for our own use! This is a treat as you can walk through garden beds and pick fresh cucumbers to a cherry tomatoes all the way to fresh kale and Japanese Pumpkins, we have over 40 different plants!

    As you track further down the property you will see another chicken shed to your right with 5000 Hyline laying hens! Now just a side note we are a Pasture Raised egg farm, meaning we only have 1500 hens per hectare! These birds Truly live a happy and healthy life!

    The further down the property you go you will see a very large dam that has just been excavated and cleaned up! This is truly a site for sore eyes on a bright sunny day with ducks living on the water and a rustic iron/timber cross bridge to walk over.

    The farm keeps going further till you reach the boundary where you can cross over into national forest with bush tracks, creeks and camp sites!

    You will also be pleased to know Kulnura is located on a Natural spring, hence the vibrant greenery! It’s no wonder George Downes Drive is classed as a Tourist Drive.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    We are a growing farm with plenty of hands on deck needed! We are a family opening our doors wide to volunteers with good morals and ethics, people who want to really experience and appreciate what a farm has to offer. We would love to teach an array of skills to those who are keen and hungry to learn, From egg, vegetable and fruit farming to your everyday skills of using equipment in the tool shed. We also like to socialise and build strong connections with the people around us. Our location has plenty to offer with close by beaches, the local damn, golf course, schools and general stores. There are many horse farmers on neighbouring properties too! Ideally we are wanting to host our farm to bring in people we can connect with whilst helping develop skills!
