Short Property Description
‘Huntly’ is an organic cattle property in the beautiful Arcadia Valley in Central Qld. We run 2000 head of cattle that graze on natural pastures & are rotated regularly.
We grow a 1000ha native forest, harvest seeds & propagate. We also grow a healthy food forest. A permaculture garden supplies an abundance of fresh food and supports our chickens, bees. The accommodation is a creative cool mud house that will inspired & ground you. One must be frog friendly, the green tree frogs are beautiful.
We hold a two day festival every Equinox (March & September) where we celebrate the changing seasons and pick a topic to explore and learn. Next March we are delving deep into Energy with Heinz Gugger. Heinz will give an overview of Dowsing Energy lines and Radionics.
Huntly is a beautiful and exciting property to stay with many National Parks to visit on your days off. There are many opportunities and lots of fun to be had here.
Full Property Description
Huntly is a 5000ha cattle property in the Central Highlands of Queensland. We are 80 kms from the small town of Rolleston so we are quite isolated. Jobs entail feeding animals, working the garden, mustering, rendering the mud walls, decorating them & lots more.
Cattle work is not very regularly, the major musters are branding in December and weaning in autumn, with incidental cattle work in between. Mustering is performed on horses and WWOOFers must have some riding experience to be included.
Organic/Biological methods we use
Huntly is a certified organic commercial beef property with an organic food garden. Our aim is to develop a healthy sustainable ecosystem. I spray most of the property with Biodynamic preps and use lots of BD compost and cow pat pits.
Our present project is to become completely self sufficient growing a food forest.
