We are a family farm nestled in a lush valley, a few minutes drive from the small quaint town of Cygnet, Huon Valley, 1 hour drive south of Hobart. The Huon Valley has a world renowned reputation for having Clean Air, Clean Water & Clean Produce. We practice Sustainable Living, we build Strong Community Relationships, we have a relaxed family environment, and are very welcoming & inclusive. We have Horses, Sheep, Goats, Pigs & Chickens. There are 5 kids aged between 4 - 20, and Alexandra, 42 - who is the Mama Farmer of all who come and stay!
We welcome a huge variety of people into our home, having had many people stay as a work-trade arrangement. We love to encourage people to share their skills, music, art, craft and stories.
While on the farm, you will be working a lot around the property with Alexandra, usually feeding animals, helping in the house/kitchen and odd farm jobs.
