  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4, who are all vegans, living on a 25 acre organic farm in NW Tasmania. Our main crops are potatoes, cherries, apples, peas, etc. We also have three cows, a goat, and a dog that are part of the family. As well as increasing and improving the gardens we have been converting some of the out buildings to accommodation. This property used to be two separate dairy farms. So there are two farm houses and two sets of out buildings. We provide nice vegan meals (milk products are only available from our own cows when giving milk as the dairy industry is too cruel to support). We normally have many helpers in the summer months as we provide nice accommodation and meals to all plus Tasmania is a popular tourist destination in the summer. We encourage all to stay for at least one week to become part of the family. It is a 45 minute drive each way to bring helpers from Burnie to the farm. Stays of longer than four weeks may not be suitable in the summer months as we may have many others wanting to come and there are not many other opportunities for travelers to Tasmania that want to experience a vegan and harmonious lifestyle. So please discuss with us if you want to stay longer than 4 weeks. Wildlife and bush walks are at your doorstep here. On clear days we can see the ocean near Boat Harbour. We try to take the helpers on a family outing to the beach or another nice setting once per week as the weather allows.
