    Description

    Located in the Lower Hunter Valley (Wollombi Valley) and only 2 hours from Sydney is our little farm. Growing garlic, lavender & breeding alpacas.

    Work varies depending on the season and the projects we currently have.
    Summer is Roma tomato season.
    Winter is garlic planing with harvesting early Summer.
    All year round lavender care
    Mid-October is Alpaca shearing week.
    Building projects such as livestock sheds we are working on at the moment.
    Also afternoon feeding the alpacas.

    Depending on dates, staying in our unique vintage train cabin or our shearers studio (which we are working on right now and nearly finished).

    You will be able to experience living off-grid and learn about alpacas and the produce we grow in a sustainable environment.

    Things to note
    * You need your own vehicle to here.
    * Suitable for couples.
    * Limited internet (wi-fi) due to satellite.
    * off-grid farm staying in our shearers studio overlooking the farm.
    * Amazing food and an off-grid experience.
    * Close to Hunter Valley attractions so you can visit the area in your own time.
    * Hang out with the friendly alpacas in the afternoon.

    What you need:
    * Closed shoes or boots for safety about the farm.
    * Sun hat for protection.

    We love hosting couples who are over the age of 24+
    We can not take children, smokers or pets. Sorry!

    Thanks Daniela
