Short Property Description
High Valley Garden Pty Ltd – pesticide free property growing 180 varieties of vegetables and 82 varieties of fruit for own use and local sales in the Omeo, Vic region. The property is off grid, relying on solar and rainwater catchment.
My wife and I take pride in growing almost all our own food throughout the year (with the exception of ice-cream and chocolate) and enjoy the mountains in which our little hobby farm is nestled in.
We love cycling, running and bush walking and a vegetarian diet of super healthy organic food, picked fresh each meal. In our spare time we work for a non-profit helping survivors of human trafficking, as well as some gardening odd jobs around the area.
Organic/Biological methods we use
We care about our food, so in turn we care about our soil. Animal manures collected locally from the fields, compost and expired plants chopped into the raised beds all rot down to make great additions to the natural organic matter in the soils.
Food is grown in careful rotation so soils are not depleted of nutrients. Pesticides are not used.

Why I became a WWOOF Host
Esther and I are serious hikers and adventurers. We’ve met many lovely WWOOF’s over the years that inspired us to become hosts ourselves, opening our home – and gardens to likeminded folk that would like to stay in a little piece of heaven and eat their way through some amazing food, while helping out with the farm chores!
