We are a small scale diversified farm just minutes from Byron Bay. With meat chickens, egg layers and cattle working in synergy together regeneratively giving back to the land whilst we produce food. We sell to local restaurants and farmers markets. Looking for someone who genuinely wants to learn more about farming in these disciplines and has a strong interest in sustainability and new ways of farming.
We are a chemical free farm using regenerative practices to improve our land whist producing food.
I (Andrew ) have been setting up managing the farm for the past year and a half and are now at the point to bring on some extra helpers to assist, learn and help develop the farming project.
I myself have been farming for the past 5 years after making the shift out of the city to pursue a a dream to live a more sustainable lifestyle connecting to the land.
Our arrangements can be flexible as daily requirements may only be 2 hours a day initially. How ever for the right people looking for longer stays with people who have relevant farming experience to look to farm sitting should farm manager need to go away.

Will get first hand experience to a more unconventional way of farming that is better for the lands health and our own. A really good insight into the local community here in the Byron region and being in a very amazing area that has a lot to offer. Byron is renowned for it relaxed lifestyle, beaches and great food.

Help needed includes collecting eggs, feeding chickens, packing grading eggs, cleaning our chicken brooders and potentially helping at the farmers markets. Also tending to our kitchen gardens - some weeding, compost building, mulching and planting. Must be ok with difficult work at times and getting your hands dirty.
We have a self contained caravan that runs off solar, with own gas cook stove and fridge and is quite comfortable.
Given being so close to Byron Bay there is an abundance of beautiful beaches and good surf. Transport is difficult without a car so having your own car is a strong preference although hitch hiking is not uncommon here and being so close to town not so difficult. Bangalow is also just 10 min away which is a lovely little town in which we do a farmers market. Also plenty of great bush walks in nature only short drives away.
