    No public transport direct to farm. Train or bus to Lismore Transit Centre will pick up as negotiated. Prefer longer stayers.

    We give priority to paid up WWOOFERS  who are between jobs working on farms picking fruit/vegies who don’t want to go through their hard earned wages paying for hostels and fast food. Why do we do this? We have done a lot of this sort of work and know how hard it is.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    Permaculture principles. Aim for sustainable property management and self sufficiency. Composting, water capture, mulching and animal manures routinely used. Some slopes have been terraced to retain water. Mixed cropping, chop and drop soil enhancement practiced.
