We are the only certified organic winery and vineyard in the Perth area. We are 11km from Midland, the nearest railway station on the Perth metro and there is a metro bus service #310 and #311 to get here.
We welcome workaway couples to our farm. Preference is given to couples at this time.
In my house there is a large separate room for a couple with a comfortable clean double bed to stay in.
We are wanting (NON smoking) couples as workaway guests wanting experience organic winemaking work. Winter is pruning time.
Be prepared to cook mixed meals for everyone while drinking organic wine is essential!
We have chickens and some other very tame pets that all like attention.
Nous parlons le français un peu. Les fumeurs seront invités à quitter.

I have many years experience in shared accommodation, viticulture, winemaking, distilling, mechanical maintenance, gardening, wine sales and environmental matters.
The work is varied and never monotonous. Sometimes there are simple chores and other times complicated work with guidance.
Some examples of fun and worthwhile exchanges are creating eco gardens, pet sitting, house sitting, baby sitting, shopping, helping to construct chicken houses, sharing in family cooking, giving a hand with general maintenance, teaching and practising languages and the list is endless.
