We value diversity, before farming full time Mark worked as a agricultural research scientist and a educator of improved farming practices, Cate is a nurse who managers her time between working at the regional hospital part time and at home, our children are keen with their sporting and musical interests.
Ethical treatment of animals is central to our outlook visitors to our farm can have an experience of an outgoing Australian family in a rural coastal setting
Visitors often have an interest in cheese making and goats you will be invited to watch and learn about the micro dairy / cheese making side of our farm life. Our staff are hands on and happy to share knowledge of low stress live stock handling with workaway'ers.
Keeping animals and value adding milk at the farm means we stay close to the farm throughout the year having helpers / visitors to the farm with a wide range of interests puts great diversity into our lives and the lives of our family. As part of the structured helping hours visitors can share their language, music and life experiences with the members of our house hold.
This is a busy place with three young children and many animals to take care of. Mark works hands on around the farm Cate works part time as a nurse.
Workaway'ers are asked to help In particular with our horses as our children are keen riders and Mark is often in the dairy.
for "hands on help" workawayers will be asked to help in our sizable family vegetable garden the produce from which contributes greatly to our food for the house, as well as routine horse care and education and training.
