    Short Property Description

    Our beautiful 1 hectare Organic Olive Grove has 296 established olive trees producing high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Infused Olive Oils and table olives. We are 10 minutes from the beach for swimming surfing and wind surfing. Also only 10 minutes from the Lancelin sand dunes and 40 minutes from the Pinnacles Desert Park both Top 10 Western Australian tourist destinations. We are only 1hour 30 mins from Perth and the international airport.    You can enjoy glorious sunsets followed by sitting around the fire pit watching the brilliant night sky. We are a couple in our 60s, we regularly have our grandchildren to visit and many friends and family to stay. You will be welcome to join us socially as much or as little as you please.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    We are transitioning our property, which we purchased in 2022, to organic. We are encouraging numerous varieties of wildflowers to grow in the grove as living mulch to improve the microbiome of our soil.

    We also use organic fertiliser, compost & seaweed

    We manage pest /diseases with only organically approved methods, eg  close monitoring, tree banding, white oil spray  &/or copper spray as needed

    We are about to experiment with producing biochar from  our prunings.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    We currently run an AirBNB and host people from all over the world. Some who have happened to stay during harvest have given us a hand,- getting to know them whilst picking was a really enjoyable experience for all and we really appreciated the help. Our neighbours have an organic vegie garden and introduced us to  WWOOFers  Our harvest for next year looks very promising, we hand pick our olives which ensures high quality EVOO so we could do with a hand. We also look forward to sharing our knowledge and skills in growing and managing an organic olive grove with interested WOOFers whilst also learning from them.
