    Short Property Description

    We are a historic homestead dating back to 1865 in Lilydale. We are on 65 acres and have a hobby farm which includes 6 cattle, 14 sheep, 4 goats, 2 horses, chickens, dogs and cats.  We have a veggie garden, fruit trees, paddocks and grounds that need maintaining. We have a comfortable two bedroom cottage for Woofers. We are a busy family with four children and it would be great to have assistance around the property. There is a bus stop at the end of our driveway to the nearby town of Lilydale, with busses and trains to melbourne- under 1 hour.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    We are a hobby farm and have a small amount of animals which will need to be feed daily, and paddocks need to be maintained. We have set up a new veggie garden which requires daily maintenance, and general gardening around the property. We hope to move towards permaculture techniques. We have a gardener who works weekly and is happy to teach anyone willing to learn.
