Picturesque working Chicken Farm. Situated on the MORNINGTON PENINSULA. A stones throw to beautiful beaches wineries & cafes. We have 27'000 chickens, a few cows and sheep. My husband is 62 and myself 59 we love to meet new people and hear their stories and have hosted overseas people on many occasions. We have four adult children the youngest 26 living at home. We have a 2 bedroom comfortable cottage for visitors. Just to let you know, there is no aircon, sorry. Our farm is like a beautiful retreat, a place to take time off from travels and marvel at all the serenity.

If interested you could learn how to run a chicken farm however we would not expect you to work directly with the chickens. Two of our daughters are teachers who are passionate about their work, if they drop in while your here the conversation will be bright rich and fun.
We would love to have some assistance cutting splitting and stacking wood for our fire. Weeding...mowing ....brush cutting...poisoning the weeds......
There could be pool cleaning, house cleaning, painting.
We have a lovely old cottage with 2 bedrooms 1 with a double bed the other with a queen bed. Everything you need is provided, washing machine sheets towels. TV fridge and basic cooking facilities
Main house has WF which your welcome to use as well as a swimming pool heated all year round.
In your time off you can catch the train to Melbourne ...1 hour....see the sights. Check out on line the Mornington Peninsula and you will see what a diverse and lovely part of the world that we live in.
While we don't smoke some of our visitors have and we only ask that you smoke outside. We are not big drinkers however we like to have a couple of wines at night. Due to the farm we ask that the chickens are not frightened by loud noises at night, so no coming home in the middle
