I'm Scott, an organic farmer near Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills, 20 minutes from Adelaide cbd. I've just had an Israeli family staying with me as a Farmstay for 3 years which has been a wonderful experience. Now they have moved on for another adventure I am looking to reinvent my farm.
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 bnb.
I've had many helpers from another website visit the Farm over the past 5 years but am new to Workaway.
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.
We do have shorter workaway stays here though ideally looking for two friends or a couple to stay longer term as it takes a while to learn everything there is to know in running the properties.

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.
Possibility of second year working holiday visa for exceptional helpers.
Our farm is a good fit for two friends as well as couples
Occasional Maintenance like painting & fencing
Looking after the animals.
There really is a lot of different things to do so I try to fit the tasks to the skills of the guests.
Of course I am happy to explain things and provide an opportunity for guests to gain new skills, that's why were here :)
Private semi-detached Studio accommodation with lots of natural light, queensize bed & wifi.
There is a bus stop directly at the from of the property which takes you to Adelaide or Mt Barker. From Adelaide you can take the tram to the beach or the port. The local area is quite hilly but we have bikes available to this wishing to explore it this way, otherwise if you have a car, there are numerous things to do all within 5 mins to an hour from here.
