  • Description


    My name is Lachlan and This year I moved onto a beautiful 300 Acre block in the hinterland of the sunshine Coast. Also living out here is My good friend and Farm Manager Paul, and Staying with us at the moment is our friend Wendy. The property is majestic and peaceful, with many pretty hills and a creek running up the middle. during the morning we wake up to the birds and in the evenings fall asleep to the sound of frogs. We are creating a small business and hope to have the farm be as self sustainable as possible. We hope to create a permaculture paradise and get as many people involved in the exciting projects as possible. at the moment we have Chooks and ducks providing fresh eggs and Joy, 25 bee hives providing honey and some income, and cows. We also have two beautiful pigs and a flock of sheep. come play with us!

    We would love help with a whole range of things. there are many projects in the pipeline. we are building a pig pen and looking after 2 beautiful pigs, building a sheep pen. establishing garden beds and a kitchen Garden. Establishing a Nursery for seedlings. There is also beekeeping work available. this could be anything from extracting honey to painting boxes and building beehives. Experience an skills are welcome but not necessary, as long as you have a willingness to give it a go and enjoy yourself then we will be very grateful for your company. We would like people to have a good balance of interesting work and play. If you have a drivers licence would be a great asset.
