  • Description


    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 and a couple of happy friendly dogs. We are a relaxed couple, my husband at 59, myself 57. 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 24 living at home. We have a 2 bedroom comfortable cottage for visitors. Our farm is like a beautiful retreat, a place to take time off from travels and marvel at all the serenity.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If interested you could learn how to run a chicken farm however we would not expect you to work directly with the chickens. All our children have traveled and the sharing of experiences. 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.

    What else ...

    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 here.
    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
    Of the night with lights flashing and party like noise.
