    Full Property Description

    Our small farm  grows mainly flowers also some salad greens and we have a small Angus cattle herd. The farm is compact and organised around keeping things neat and colourful. Its located just outside Lismore with views over town to the world heritage rainforests in the north.

    Greg is a qualified horticulturist and is in charge of the growing side of things. Growing is intensive and there is always plenty to do.  Lyndy is a flowerista and creates arrangements and bunches from the flowers. We both have extensive knowledge in gardening. If you wish to learn gardening then we can certainly help.

    Wwoofing with us means you share our lifestyle which includes growing, harvesting and selling at the regular markets in town. We start early and take a rest in the heat of the day. Woofers need to expect some physical work as well as an early start on market days.

    We live in a modern house with solar power, rainwater on tap and great views. Each bedroom is large and has its own ensuite. Woofers comment on how nice their space is. Food is good and you share meals with us (and participate in meal cooking and cleaning).  Vegetarians welcome and we will do our best with special diets.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    We grow using organic methods, fertilised by compost and manures. The garden beds are arranged for easy maintenance with an easy picking height.

     

    Special Conditions

    We are an easy going mature age couple who enjoy wwoofer company. No smoking please on our farm, same for illicit drug use. Please let us know if you have special needs or restrictions (like bee allergy).
