  • Description

    Description

    We are an organic farm run by a couple stewarding 250ha of beautiful land, half of which is natural bush surrounded by vast native forest. We share our area with lots of wildlife including kangaroos, emus, wombats and birds. We grow certified organic garlic and other crops. We offer our volunteer helpers accommodation in clean comfortable rooms and fresh vegetarian food. A free yoga class is offered on one of the two days off per week. We will also show you around our district, both the mountains and the beaches. Responsible alcohol, no smoking inside.
