  • Description


    My wife and I live in the beautiful Perth Hills on a 2 hectare property 5 minutes from Kalamunda town side and 25 min from Perth. We're a small organic farm growing all different kinds of things. We're from European background living in Australia for over 30 years now, and speak English, Dutch and German and got 2 kids, our son Nic (27) and daughter Karina (24). We've had a lot of backpackers staying with us in the past and have plenty of space. Generally we need help with work in the house and garden and maintenance around the place. we also have an eco project , building a swimming pond and restoring an old cottage. And than we also produce our own wine.
