  • Description


    Hi we are Scott & Mary, we have an organic farm near Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills, 20 minutes from Adelaide cbd.

    I design and build tiny houses on the property & can always use a helping hand beautifying and improving things, as well as help with growing beautiful organic veggies and keeping the animals that share the property happy.

    Our animals are pets, we are not in the meat industry.

    The main farmhouse is rented is farmstay accommodation and TinyHome is a pop-up b&b.
    Staying here you have your own light and bright studio room with queensize bed, wifi and a large, warm adjoining communal loft space with kitchen - living areas & beautiful views.

    For hard working and motivated people there is second year working holiday visa positions.

    Get in touch if you're interested in visiting!

    The Adelaide Hills is a beautiful, safe and unique part of Australia. Each season is distinctly different. Dry summers and misty winters with log fires, colourful autumn leaves and vibrant springs. The landscape is magnificent. Kangaroos and Australian wildlife are regular visitors. Experiencing this place is a large part of the visit.
    I am a wanderer who loves discovering new places, traveling locally and internationally many times a year. I like sharing adventure stories and hearing about other travellers' experiences.
