We love to welcome people from all over the world to our farm and into our family. We really enjoy sharing stories and learning about different cultures and ways of life.
We are passionate about the changes we have made on our small Tahitian lime orchard (just over 1500 trees) as we transition from conventional farming methods to biological / biodynamic methods. We concentrate on soil health and biology to gain better nutrition levels in the trees and fruit and are keen to share what we do here with others. 2020 has also seen us starting up a small mushroom farm, this is a new venture with lots of learning. It also means that we are not able to get away from the farm so having visitors is great for us as we still get to have wonderful cultural exchanges and 'travel virtually' through our guests.
We love our animals and have two beautiful dogs, a cat, horses, cows and chooks. We also like to grow our own vegies and herbs as we enjoy cooking and love learning about everyday foods from other countries/cultures.
We are happy to provide accommodation (a self contained unit built within the main packing shed with a bedroom and separate kitchenette, toilet and shower and laundry facilities) and share our meals with you in exchange for help with the animals, around the property and in the house. We prefer to host couples or two people travelling together as the accommodation is separate from the main house. WiFi is included. The farm is no smoking, no drugs site.
