  • Description


    We have a small Chestnut farm located high in the mountains (elevation 600mts) of the midcoast of NSW. Elands, our village is home to the spectacular Ellenborough Falls. Our farm is within walking distance of the falls, as well as beautiful swimming pools and rainforest walks.
    We are currently looking to host a fun couple to help with our Chestnut harvest starting in early March.
    The work is simple, collecting fallen nuts morning and afternoon and helping to roast some throughout the day.
    There is plenty of time for exploring, we are a funned open minded family and will happily join you for swimming and canoeing adventures and walks and also happy to show you where the best places are to explore on your own.
    We have been hosting helpers for over 10 years and they have given us great reviews.
    We love good food, good fun and exchanging ideas and stories.
    We live completely off grid and enjoy being able to share our experiences and lifestyle.
    We also have our own chickens and vegetable gardens, along with 2 spoilt dogs.
    If you're ready for a unique and fun adventure we'd love to hear from you.
    From all at Fruits & Nutters
    Happy Days

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Travellers that have stayed with us in the past, mostly from another platform, say they have learned so much about sustainable living, and community we have both in spades here. also they learn a little about farm animals and caring for them. We live on solar with no outside services and try to be as self sufficient as we can.
