Description
A lovely property located in beautiful open countryside 10 miles from Perth. The small holding has been managed in a sustainable way for 40 years with an attempt to be as organic and self sufficient as possible.

WWOOFers are welcome to come and enjoy 'the good life' and experience the tasks associated with this lifestyle.

The 4 acre field is leased for sheep. Part of it has a tree nursery growing heritage apple, plum and pear trees. The .75 acre garden has an organic veg patch, a flower garden, a large lawn, and a wooded area managed for firewood. Hens produce fresh eggs.

I enjoy cooking for WWOOFers. Ingredients include eggs from the hens, veg and salad in season from the garden and meat including local game. No fussy eaters please.
