  • Beschreibung


    Our home is nestled on a 40 acres block in the granite belt region , queensland , approximately 2,5 hours from brisbane
    We live in a rural set up only 10 min away from town , which is stanthorpe.
    The region is well known for fruit and vegetables picking , vineyards and beautiful national parks like Girraween , Boonoo Boonoo , Bald rock national parks
    We are a couple in our 50's and living each in our own house
    My name is Lionel ,I am a chef by trade and owned a catering business for the last 15 years and recently retired form the job with the idea to start a new life on the farm and grown veggies and medicinal herbs for a healthy sustainable future
    My cultural background originated from a farmer and catering family , growing up in a small village in the south of France where life revolve around food and socialising ; nothing much have changed only the location!!!
    I cook all sort of world food and can adapt to various dietary requirements ; there is a wood fire oven being used weekly for pizza and bread baking, yummm!!!
    Also, I love to ride mountain bike as part of my daylight exercise and yoga /meditation to unwind
    karen is a professional photographer and keen horse rider ; She grew up in Antwerp , Belgium , where she studied a bachelor of graphic designer.
    I have recently renovated my house and I can host 2 couples or 2 single men . You would be staying in a very comfortable house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
    Karen has got a self contained caravan sitting next to her house and she could host a couple or a single person during the summer months as it is too cold during the winter.
    we will provide meals and eat together most of the time as part of our cultural exchange although breakfast could be eaten at separate times due to my farming schedule
    we are asking to the guest to help us participating in the communal effort of meal preparations and general house cleaning.
    We are looking for active and enthusiastic crew to help on finishing my house renovations and our project is to develop the land into a small garden produce market and medicinal herbs to feed ourselves well and sell the leftovers to local farmers market.
    We would welcome skills such as farming, carpentry, tilling and general maintenance for the farm
    The right applicant would be asked to help 4 hours for their stay and I would happily pay hourly wage for the extra work they are willing to do ; The rates would be agreed according to their skills .
    In short, we hope to attract likeminded young people, who appreciate nature , good food and a big heart for animals.
    looking forward meeting you
    A bientôt
