Welcome to our hobby farm. We are a family of three, me and my wife and a son who is studying IT at uni. We have 26 acres of beautiful country and bush land. A few animals like miniature horses, alpacas, cows, goats and dog living in our farm. Many native animals like wallabies, tropical birds, hares and possums are living around as well. We have a few organic vegetable patches and a small orchard that is growing. We would love to plant more fruit trees and raise native stingless bees for natural pollination. There will be various small projects around the farm you are going to be involved. We hope you like our farm and enjoy working with us. It would be wonderful to share our life with you and also learn from you. Our place is a non smoking and non alcohol place, so it is a safe and addiction free space.
Best wishes for your journey in Australia.

Main work around farm would be animal feeding, building soil n gardening, mulching n watering, weeding n cutting grass, tree planting n cutting, working in small projects. Working together is always fun n joyful n much more productive. You are going to work 2 hours in the morning and a couple of hours in the afternoon and you will have opportunities to prepare meals sometime if you enjoy cooking. We love to meet proactive and creative people, discuss and share life issues, building visions and goals for life, finding gifts and talents that are hidden in ourselves.
Workawayers can stay at the guest residence while there is no guests or in house. The guest residence is fully self contained with large space. It is a renovated shed that is used for short term rental guests. Bed and three meals will be provided in exchange with 4-5 hours of daily help in the farm. Breakfast and lunch is self serving and dinner can be prepared with shared cultural knowledge and experience. Workawayers can also boast their national cooking talent in this space.
We usually work early in the morning and late afternoon avoiding strong sun in Australia. So, workawayers will have plenty of private time to explore local places like Maleny, Montville, National parks, walking trails etc...
