I had an amazing time working here for about a month. Bob and his partner were very welcoming and hospitable. The meals they cooked were very yummy and delicious, thanks, Bob! I enjoyed helping around their beautiful property doing gardening, weeding, irrigation work, blackberry picking, and some help in their guest accommodation cabins. I would love to visit and help some more one day. WWOOFer Raymond H 20-05-22

What a wonderful time l had with Tinker and Ad! I really loved being with them, being in their amazing garden, sharing their delicious food, tasting their wonderful homemade beers, and having deep and interesting conversations. They totally represent what I am looking for when I go to help people, there is a real exchange, we really share… So if you want to meet beautiful people, if you want to learn a lot in a self-sufficient place, if you want to be in nature, to laugh, to share, to enjoy the life, go there !!! Thanks a lot for this experience Ad and Tinker, and see you in France ! –WWOOFer Erwan B 11-05-22
My time with Tinker and Ad was too brief but very enjoyable – it sure lived up to the earlier reviews. I can confirm that the food experience is exceptional – from paddock to plate with an array of methods to store the surplus in between, and Tinker is ready to share her knowledge. If it’s getting late and Ad wonders aloud “What’s for dinner?”, don’t despair – a treat is near! There is also a strong sense that Tinker and Ad really value the help that many WWOOFers have provided over the years, it’s a real win-win. I hope to be back, for a longer stay! – WWOOFer Paul H 29-05-22
It was my first WWOOFing experience and I felt like I’ve come out a fresher, stronger person! The past 5 weeks spent with Gabe & Kim had been very eye-opening for me and there is so much on the farm to learn – I helped to plant 80-100 (lost count!) trees which could provide great shelter for the cows, learned how to operate both mechanical & manual tools and we even had a bonfire! The bonuses along the way were some of the day to day tasks that Gabe would not hesitate to rope me in, from finding a trail camera which we could set up on trees or down at the creek to record the many different wildlife babies roaming at the farm to getting to see a dam and road being built at their paddocks. They have been so hospitable and welcoming and ensured that I’m always kept comfy and warm, and along the way the farm life has been so fulfilling with them that I wouldn’t know what to do with my old life now that I’m back in the city! Life at Springfield has been so peaceful, adventurous, and fun. I learned and gained a whole lot more than I expected, a memorable experience and a very very wonderful lovely family here in Australia. I hope to come back real soon and bring my friends along with me the next time as well! Hugs & cuddles. WWOOFer Bec K 29-05-22
From the first second, I felt like a part of the family and welcomed during my stay on Mirboo Ridge. Linda and Phil are such great and lovely people. Although I could just stay for a few days, it was really worth it and just wonderful. Your day starts with one of the best views you probably had for a long time and with delicious muesli with a lot of fresh fruits or self-made bread if you want. We ate every meal together, like a family. The work here is never boring, Linda and Phil know how to make your stay really interesting and varied. Fencing, gardening, moving the cattle, or looking after the bees. I could tell you a lot more although it was just 4 days…you see, you have to visit them when you want to have a great time. Linda and Phil, thank you so much that I could stay with you. It was a great time and message me when you plan your next big trip to europe🥳 Best –WWOOFer Jacob W 28-05-22
