We are a gay male couple and we have 2 farms one growing truffles and the other pine nuts. We are aiming to be organic eventually. One of us works away during the week, whilst the other works the farms full-time. Were both getting older physically and are now struggling to keep up with the daily physical challenges of the farms. We are building a self-sustaining brand and tourist destination and are looking for one or two people to help us get on top of things.

You will live in a very comfortable two bedroom cottage next to the main house, and will have meals with us or self cater (choice is yours but we like company). There is fairly reliable mobile coverage and if you have a mobile data internet connection you should be able to receive coverage.
We are only about 10 kilometres from Marulan, but it is too hilly for bikes. If you have your own car then you will have access to Canberra (an hour away) and rest of the Southern Highlands during downtime. This is a beautiful quiet area of the Southern Highlands and downtime could be utilised for writing, creating art or photography.
