  • Description


    We live on a beautiful 15 hectare property amongst the rolling hills of the mighty Mersey river, northwest of Deloraine. I am an owner builder ( carpenter and joiner) with extensive solar power, abundant orchard of fruit, nuts and berries, providing year round scrumptious, mouth watering delicacies. We have a productive vegetable garden, house cow, laying hens and 2 vibrant teenage boys.
    Our interests are in sustainable living and in nurturing a respect for mother earth.
    We have a farm business welcoming guests into our self contained accommodation and offer workshops in all things sustainable.

    During your stay you can help with harvesting, preserving, gardening, building projects, general home and farm maintenance, and laying back enjoying the tranquility of this harmonious sanctuary.
    Close by you can enjoy nice walks, great views and swimming in the local river. Lots of wildlife share this home with us including platypus.

    More recently I'm currently a practicing practitioner in a mind-body tapping based healing process called Fastereft...Im always very happy to share this process with you if your interested.

    Long term staying helpers are welcome!
