    Description

    Hi, We are very easy going ,hard working farmers. We have 2 farms on which we grow seasonal vegetables. We are wild life carers, so more often than not have orphaned roos in care. Most afternoons the roos we have released come back for a bit of dinner. We run a rental cottage, and Liz has a catering business. So all in all we are a bit crazy. On our farm we have chickens, turkeys, pigs,( piglets) sheep, lambs (often orphaned lambs ) ,cattle, 5dogs, and 3 cats. We are busy, but still like to enjoy a quiet glass of wine / beer in the evenings and have a chat.

    I guess the main benefit for you will be to experience the farming lifestyle in Australia. I can guarantee you will say often "well I haven't done that before".

    Help

    If you would like to come and stay with us, you will be treated as one of the family.On any given day you could be helping John with the veges ( tomatoes, zucchini, cucumber, pumpkins, leeks,and sometimes peas) Helping with the sheep and cattle. or helping Liz with the rental, or in the kitchen . There is always something to do. We will not ask you to do anything we wont do or help you with. Before we all sit down for a beer in the evenings we have to feed all the animals. We get up early and go to bed early.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Time off ... hahahahaha... when we do get a break we live an an incredible part of Australia. We are on the granite Belt so are surrounded by HUGE rocks. We are very close a National Park. I like to take people on a tour around the place, visiting olive farms, cheese factories, and other touristy things. There is no public transport in Stanthorpe, and we live 16klm south of town ( so we are a bit isolated) but one of us is in town every day so can get anything you may want or need.
