  • Description

    Description

    South Coast NSW small family of blueberry growers, vegetable garden, orchard and honey bees. Surrounded by National Park and only 7 kms to the coast and amazing beaches. Beaches include Bawley Point, Pebbly Beach, Pigeon House mountain is to the west.
    Only 1 hour to Jervis Bay. So much to explore. Kangaroos on the beaches.
    We commenced farming 10 years ago and very much enjoy the company of travellers.
    The property is off grid and powered by solar power.
    Modern accommodation in renovated stables is completely self contained with own bathroom and cooking facilities. Close to Batemans Bay and Ulladulla to the north, Sydney 250kms away.
    Prefer longer stay than just a few days.
    Work is mainly outdoors on the farm including mowing, gardening, trimming, labelling punnets and general daily farm work. Previous skills not required but beneficial.

    Own transport essential
