    Hi Folks. Our Farm is a beautiful 140 acre organic natural farm in Central Victoria and is part of the thriving local communities of Castlemaine, Hepburn & Daylesford. Working with friends and our community we follow permaculture principles and best practice regenerative farming techniques. We embrace a natural life connected to the land as a path for fun, health and happiness. Our Homestead lifestyle incorporates rocket (wood) fired hot water, cooking and heating, compost toilet, whole organic foods from the farm or trusted local suppliers and a more sustainable lifestyle... with internet. Our Farm is a positive, supportive, safe place where everyone feels hugged. There’s plenty to do and knowledge to share, permaculture design, eco building, appropriate technology, riparian activities, natural farming, animal management (inc. organic cattle), gardening and landscaping. Accomodation for up to 8 people, with shared meals supporting varied dietary preferences. Initial stay ideally 2-3 weeks. An interest in Permaculture, natural farming, or environmental stewardship would be an advantage, but not essential. So come and experience great community, learning, conscious & sustainable farm life and lots of fun.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Each year in Spring & Autumn we host and present in about 6-8 Permaculture Design Courses (PDC's) plus various other courses on alternative technology, rocket stoves, forest ecology and the like. Apart from complete immersion into a sustainable homestead lifestyle visitors will also have an opportunity to learn about and gain practical experience in some of the above course subjects plus a wide range of other natural sciences, like regenerative agroforestry, Keyline systems, water management, mycology (mushrooms), setting up natural food systems, sourdough bread and cheese making, preserving, fermentation and a bunch of other stuff. Realistically we're probably not going to be able to teach you all of these things, but if any of it interests you, just let us know and we'll see what we can do.

    We are a busy little homestead and permaculture farm which will have you involved in a wide range of varied and interesting activities everyday depending on ever changing opportunities and priorities. We work in our annual food gardens, our perennial garden systems or around the farm for food, medicinal, aromatics, teas, planting and propagating trees and more. There's a Dave Jacke concept food forest design to be implemented, we work with our soils, various compost systems, bio char burns and inoculation, alternative (appropriate) technology, rocket stoves, eco/recycled materials building works, humane happy livestock/animal management..... and so much more.

    Life is wonderfully diverse here on the farm, as we live seasonally and exciting new things happen almost everyday based mostly on what changing resources become available and our existing or evolving new natural living skill sets, ...we're always learning. It could be almost anything, soap making, tinctures, extractions, curing, new fungi discoveries, adventures in ecology, foraging, cooking, preserving.....

    Please note, apart from the varied work activities around the farm & homestead, visiting our farm will have you immersed in a sustainable homestead lifestyle with all the rewarding daily activities that entails, there could be cows to be milked, bread and cheese making, great cooking with wonderful fresh ingredients.... There are no gender biased roles, we support each other, try out new things and we endeavour to find some balance between work, rest and play.
