    Beschreibung

    Our three generation family run a 5500 acre merino wool farm, with sheep, cattle, dogs, bees and chooks. We are in the establishment phase of our permaculture garden and food forest but are aiming to produce most of our own food in the future. use holistic management and free choice lick with livestock.

    We are always learning more and hope to find a person who wants to grow with us for a while! Our goal is greater self-sufficiency with less work and more fun.


    We eat meat but do cater for vegetarians. Accommodation either in main house or the separate shack. We have a well-stocked library, nearby national parks to explore (the beautiful Warrumbungle Mountains) and thousands of acres to roam and explore as you like.We hope to hear from you soon!

    update
    we are currently in drought feeding mode, which includes trailing grain and lopping Kurrajongs(pollarding forage shrubs). if we find time we have numerous building projects to attack, including milling timber, walipini(pit greenhouse), shack extension, building trellis on house, woolshed extension, renovations to second house, etc.

    Possible daily tasks you may help with are, feeding livestock, working on vege garden, planting fruit trees, compost making, cooking, shifting livestock, general farm maintenance etc.

    Also to add to farm work I have two daughters Rose(22 months) and Bonnie(3.5) Years. So if you are more interested in au pair/ nanny work, I would appreciate the help.

    We hope to hear from you soon.
    Cheers Will
