    Short Property Description

    19 ha Certified Organic farm with 4ha cleared and the rest natural bushland. Unfortunately 75% of the bushland and some pasture was burnt in the 2019 bushfire. As such we are again to be able to sign off on 2nd year Visa extension due to this disaster. Garlic was the main crop, with a fruit orchard & vegetables all in the rebuilding process. We aim to make as many foods as possible from what we grow. Vegetarian & Vegan foods are the norm as no animal meat is consumed, except by the dog. We only have sheep and a kelpie working dog that loves to play too. Other volunteer tasks include crop bed building, general farm maintenance, gardening, mowing, mulching, watering, and much much more due to the bushfire disaster. The house, sheds and buildings were luckily spared by the hardworking people who assisted in saving the property! WWOOFers must be well presented with healthy habits. Accommodation for 1 person or couple in our guest room. Shared meals, all cook together if you like. Vegetarian / vegan diet only. Mature age WWOOFers welcome. No smoking. Long stays easily negotiable, ie do you need 88days signed off!

    Organic/Biological methods we use
