    Short Property Description

    The HUF is an urban farm located in the picturesque hills of Perth located approx. 30 kilometres from the CBD.  The property is located on an acre of land with a vision of self sufficiency.

    Accommodation is a fully en-suited room with own shower and toilet within the main home. Queen sized bed with built in robes.

    PLEASE NOTE WE ARE ON SEVERE WATER RESTRICTIONS WHICH UNFORTUNATELY MEANS 5 MINUTE SHOWERS AND GENERAL CARE WITH WATER OVERALL WE REQUIRE YOU TO RESPECT THIS.

    Live produce includes bee hive, chickens, quails, aquaponics (for fish farming), mealworm farms, black soldier fly farms and worm farms.

    We try and make own produce on the property including preserving, pickling, dehydrating.

    The property has solar into the grid but we are wanting to expand to a solar stand alone battery system to run the additional aquaponic systems we want to build and install.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    All natural fertilisers and soil prepared on site with own compost, mulch, worm castings, bug frass. Plants are regularly watered by the aquaponic fish water adding extra nutrients.

    Poultry manure is aged and then composted. Our vegetable gardens are grown in both raised beds and in ground from heirloom and organic seeds with a big emphasis on seed saving from our own produce.
