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.

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.
helping approx. 4-5 hrs a day at Chestnut time mainly collection and sorting nuts, also some gardening and general yard work, Sometimes we have a building project or painting it's varied help.
Accommodation is a very ,charming and cosy caravan, with a Queen sized bed. with a large shelter built over the top. It is situated well away from the main house and is very private. There are cooking facilities. The toilet is also located under the shelter with a compostable toilet system in place, shower uses gas heated water. There is a well stocked fridge and pantry for you to prepare your own breakfast, lunch and snacks , I cook the evening meal. The caravan is also solar powered and can be used to charge devices.
When not helping there are some lovely walks and swimming holes and waterfalls to explore. Telstra and Aldi mobile phone providers will get service here, wifi is located in one of our houses, portable hotspoting works well as an internet option. We are an easy going happy family and would like helpers to be of a similar nature. We also like our privacy at times and respect the privacy of others.
