  • Descripción


    Ours is a small holistic family farm, based on sustainable principals.
    The farm is entirely off-grid, running on solar and rain water.
    We have awesome compost toilets and re-use all our grey-water.
    We hand milk 2.5 cows, have broiler and layer chickens, sheep, meat rabbits, some bees, pigs, fruit and veg.
    We practice restorative grazing and have a live stock guardian puppy.
    We process a lot of our own food (slaughtering chickens and rabbits, making cheese, kombucha, chutney, butter, bla bla bla), cook from scratch, sell/give away extra, home school our 3 awesome kids and run a small carpentry workshop.
    We are 15 min from town or 15 min to the beach and are on the Gonubie river.

    If you don't want to get your hands dirty, if you are afraid of hard work, if you have strong vegan/vegetarian views... then we suggest you consider an alternative option.

  • Ayuda


    Predominantly helping with everyday farming activities; milking, moving electric fences, creating compost, working on the veggies, basic construction, feeding livestock, "processing" rabbits and chickens (if you are keen), fixing, cleaning, cutting, sanding... other things ending in "ïng" As well as chipping in with meals and dishes.
    Possibly a little help with homeschooling the kids (6, 8 & 9 years old... most wonderful-est kids in the world)
    As well as possibly assisting with a weekly program for teenage boys from the neighboring informal settlement or at the new library which we are trying to establish there.
