We are lucky to live on a gorgeous 177 acre farm in Tallangatta Valley in beautiful North East Victoria. We have accommodation for large groups such as school camps. At the back of property we have a huge dam with a stunning outlook across the valley. A perfect place to enjoy a relaxing paddle in a canoe. We have beef cattle, sheep, dogs and a very cheeky deer, plus many different birds visit the property. Our family, Brian & Tanya with children Sean and Layla, purchased the property in December 2017. We need assistance with general farm maintenance and gardening. We've planted an orchard and veggie patch.
If you don't have your own transport we can pick you up from Albury/Wodonga.
We live in a stunning environment. You'll learn about the natural and farm environments. We have various animals that enjoy a cuddle or to be fed a treat. We have very friendly dogs and a deer, who love to get to know new visitors.
We need help with gardening and general farm maintenance. We have lots of things to do and you can choose what suits your skills and you are comfortable to do.
We've recently put in a large veggie garden and orchard. We hope in the future to be self-sustaining for our family and volunteers. We'd like to add small sculptures/things of interest to our garden. If you are artistic and think you could re-purpose old farm junk into garden artwork, then please come and give it a go.
Volunteers will sleep in a separate accommodation building, that has just been re-painted and carpeted and is set in a lovely garden. We'll have breakfast and lunch supplies so you can help yourself. We often eat all the meals together. We'll cook a dinner for you to eat with us each night. We can accommodate various diet requirements, please just let us know before you arrive.
In your time off enjoy the property, from swimming in the pool, canoeing on the dam or try out our flying fox. Or read a book under a shady tree. Nearby we have lake Hume and National Parks. There is also the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail nearby, if you are interested in cycling, we have bikes you can use.
