My husband and I are beef producers living near Heywood, Victoria. Located within walking distance of the state forest and 11kms from the beach makes for an ideal holiday destination. We have a dog, ducks and chooks to enjoy. We have hosted international exchange students from many different countries. Some who have visited with us since. We enjoy riding motorbikes, attending church, and socialising with new people. Our children are all married with families of their own, located near and far (USA). The farm is certified organic. We would love to have interested people come and spend time with us and share in our journey. They may even be encouraged to begin their own food producing business.

We are currently moving towards a more holistic managed enterprise which means there is more for us to do to apply these principles. Mob grazing using hot wires, setting up water points, fencing for shelter breaks and creating shady areas.
Help with a building renovation, general gardening, experience helping on a free range egg farm as well as helping with cattle/chickens etc.. We have a sawmill so there is plenty of timber available for building projects for those workawayers who have carpentry skills! Any one who has a background in marketing are keenly sought to help get our products into the public arena.
