Short Property Description
We are an establishing farm located in the bountiful and beautiful Huon Valley. Spread across 9 acres of woodland and sloping pasture we have mixed production with market gardens, orchards, and developing woodland livestock and poultry. We grow to eat, sell and use all elements of plants and animals in creative ways across the properties. We are also regenerating our bush and interested in applying European woodland management techniques in an Australian context.
Work on the properties is seasonal and varied. Tasks can include bed preparation, compost and amendment preparations, weeding and propagation, moving and feeding/watering animals, building and repairing fences, creating woodland tracks, regenerative landscaping, construction projects and general homesteading such as wood chopping and food preserving.

Why I became a WWOOF Host
We shifted our lifetsyles from city based to chasing the dream of living off the land. We read widely, watched countless hours of youtube how-to videos and documentaries and attended a few courses to help us on our way. We also found visiting properties a great way to see how others do it and pick up some great tips that you can’t find in a book or online.
Whilst additional labour is always appreciated, we really joined as WWOOF Hosts to share our experiences and show others what can be done. We hope this might inspire some to buck the trend and chase a wild dream.
