Hello to you, along with my son and daughter-in-law I have a small Chestnut farm, only 13 trees, but they need to be harvested and the grounds maintained. We also have a few pet farm animals, a dear old lady goat, an adolescent steer, 12 chooks and 2 very spoiled dogs. We are situated on the Mid North Coast of NSW about 1/2 way between Sydney and Brisbane. Our beautiful little village is called Elands and is surrounded by rainforest and waterfalls, with lovely swimming pools and rainforest walks. I can pick you up in Taree or Port Macquarie, from bus or train. Accommodation is a quaint and cosy caravan.
In exchange for 4-5 hrs help a day, this varies from collecting nuts to helping with gardens or some brush cutting, or whatever project we are currently working on, I provide accommodation, a fully stocked fridge and pantry for you to prepare your own breakfast and lunch and I cook a substantial hot meal at night for you. If possible we prefer a couple, but happy to consider all offers of help. We are a fun and easy going family and would like to host similar people.
Sharyn, Sam, Faye and baby Kado.

Travellers that have stayed with us in the past, mostly from another platform, say they have learned so much about sustainable living, and community we have both in spades here. also they learn a little about farm animals and caring for them. We live on solar with no outside services and try to be as self sufficient as we can.

Accommodation is a very ,dry,charming and cosy caravan, with a Queen sized bed. with a large shelter built over the top. It is situated well away from the main house and is very private. There are cooking facilities. The toilet is also located under the shelter with a compostable toilet system in place, shower uses solar heated water. There is a well stocked fridge and pantry for you to prepare your own breakfast, lunch and snacks , I cook the evening meal. The caravan is also solar powered and can be used to charge devices.
When not helping there are some lovely walks and swimming holes and waterfalls to explore. Telstra and Aldi mobile phone providers will get service here, wifi is located in one of our houses, portable hotspoting works well as an internet option. We are an easy going happy family and would like helpers to be of a similar nature. We also like our privacy at times and respect the privacy of others.
