    Short Property Description

    25 acres in the foothills of Mt. Roland near Sheffield on the way to Cradle Mt.

    The farm is run on the Permaculture principles, with a small herd of cattle, some poultry, orchard with mixed fruit, walnut & hazelnut trees, vegetable garden and a black-wood timber plantation.

    Gilles of French origin, is a carpenter, cabinet maker by trade & often involved in construction projects & prefers to use natural materials such as mud brick, cob or pressed earth bricks.

    Accommodation is a comfortable self-contained cottage with its own kitchen, bathroom & toilets, solar hot water and wood stove.

    Work is varied: feeding animals, gardening, picking fruits & nuts, at the end of summer, collecting firewood etc, sometimes it could be woodwork.

    The  guests are treated like part of the family and share main meals in the house and are welcome to share preparation of the food.

    The duration of stay can vary, we like it to be at least 2 weeks but it is mostly decided in the first few days. French and English spoken.
