    Description

    2 kms from Harvey (West Australia) our small family farm grows organic vegetables from August to June. We have been certified organic since the year 2000. Cinzia and I sell our produce to the wholesale markets in Perth and have a home delivered box scheme. We are very serious in what we are doing.
    We both share photography and travel as a pastimes and Cinzia loves to take videos and post them on YouTube where she has her own channel also. .

    Cinzia and I really love to share our different cultures, Italian and Australian, with our guests. We have been hosting volunteers for more than 4 years now and take great pleasure in sharing our knowledge of organic farming and our experience of running a small business with them.

    Hi, to everyone. We are looking for genuine volunteer to help us to planting, weeding, harvesting and packing our crops. Also whipper snipping around the farm and general gardening. The planting is done by machines and most of the weeding also. All the harvesting is done by hand.
