    Short Property Description

    Right on the banks of the beautiful Goulburn River we operate a 4(ish) acre organic vegetable farm providing produce to Melbourne and our local community through farmers markets and direct sales to our region’s best restaurants.  We grow a wide variety of beautiful and seasonal heirloom vegetables. We love what we do, work hard and eat really well.

    Our farm is a great place to experience farming and learn about food growing.  We are passionate about organic farming and are always improving our practices and sharing the things we have learnt. Everyday work varies greatly but includes planting, harvesting, weeding, seeding and attending markets. We host WWOOFers from all over the world and are always grateful for their enthusiasm, hard work and the opportunity to share cultures and experiences.

    Accommodation is mostly in the farmhouse but if the house is full we can accommodate people in the caravan (or your own tent/yurt/swag if you are feeling super outdoorsy).

    Ideally WWOOFers will stay for at least 1 week (some stay much longer.). We eat mainly vegetables from the farm and produce from other farmers. We love to cook and eat and share cooking and cleaning on a rotational roster. The house has fast nbn wifi and other mod cons like electricity. We have chickens and a very fancy rooster. The farm is right on the river within a larger winery property. The river is beautiful with great spots to swim, walk and explore. There are many trees and habitat for lots of wildlife including heaps of native birds and even the occasional koala.

    We are right on the edge of Seymour town and are easily reached by train from Melbourne. Looking forward to meeting you.
