We are setting up a new hobby farm in Ashby, NSW, 10 minutes from Maclean, 20 Minutes from Yamba. We are in our 30's and have a 12 year old son living with us as well as a small dog and a cat. The property is waterfront and just over 4 acres, we want to grow vegetables to eat and eventually to sell.

The bedroom that Workawayers will stay in is shown in the photo's, there are 2 sets of French doors that lead out to the veranda, the bedroom has just been renovated. We eat vegetarian food, we are good cooks and have a beautiful vegetarian kitchen as shown in the photo's. It is a very comfortable nice house.
We have just had a pool installed (the landscaping isn't done yet) Workawayers are welcome to use the pool, we also have a boat ramp and workawayers are welcome to use our canoe. There is a pub 5 minute drive away in Harwood and a lovely general store that does takeaway food 5 minutes drive away in Chatsworth Island.
