    hi guys we grow limes for the Australian market .. we are a family run farm with my self Mark and wife Natalie and son Joel and his wife Teila and farm being the core of our little venture .. we take life at a slower pace than some but never fail to maintain the property to a high standard of excellence to insure our great life style.. we see work as being part of the gift of life but never being a slave to it .. we pick on and off all throughout the year.. so if we're not picking there's always something on the go.. currently no payment for work ..but great food and accommodation and friendly hosts

    we are very friendly and love to have people who have something to share in the way of them self's .. you will be in a typical Australian home well our typical anyway .. and most people leave us feeling they have gained some kind of enlightenment in one way or another .. from farm experience to just a general well being .. it is important for you when with us to feel at home and to be your self ..

    our main work is at the picking time which is off and on most the year we also have a few head of cattle, chickens and dogs and cats .. help around the house is also required in the busy times cooking cleaning and general duties we are real farmers and not just a life style farm .. that being said our hours very from day to day .. it is not expected but we believe for you to get a true feel for our country and our way of life .. you cant be watching the clock some days maybe five hours some days two and others could be twelve .. if your not flexible then it won't work for you or for us .. so when deciding to come to us let it be because you have an attitude of embracing our culture and life style, if you want office hours .. please find a workaway in the city .. we respect all beliefs and cultures so that's all we ask in return .. enjoy your travel and learn to live .. bless you all Namaste

    ps we are currently not offering payment for work .. thank you
