    Description

    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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.
