Farm Host with a passion for veggie growing required in the iconic Margaret River, WA.

Do you want to explore the Margaret River Region, live with locals, meet like minded travellers, experience life on a farm AND save money?

10 years ago we purchased a small 150 acre farm which now has mixed livestock (cows, sheep, pigs, chooks, dogs and horses), a campground for self contained travellers, an “on farm butchery/ smokery” and farmstay accommodation.

We are looking for a mature couple or single person who is keen to get involved and settle in the area for anywhere from 1 month to 6 months on our farm. Start date could be from Now, September onwards - we are willing to wait for the right person/ couple.

Applicant requirements:

  • A passion for veggie growing, to be involved establishing and managing a farm veggie patch
  • An interest in general gardening
  • Versatility (nothing is a problem and willing to give it a go)
  • To work unsupervised
  • Honest and trustworthy
  • Love of farm animals (want to experience living on a small farm and are happy to be involved in the day to day looking of all animals on the farm when the owners are away)

What we are offering:

  • A safe, quiet and private site on hard standing with power, water and dump point for your self contained van/motorhome on our farm.
  • A central location to base your self to discover the whole of the South West Corner of WA - beaches, walking, wineries, food and wildlife. The farm is only a 10 minute drive from the town of Margaret River with both Dunsborough and Augusta a 40 minute drive from the farm.
  • This is not a paid position but for the right couple we are happy to offer some $$ remuneration for work in connection to cleaning and welcoming guests to our studio accommodation.

The successful applicants will have their own fully contained caravan/ motorhome, a positive attitude, good people skills, like things to be clean and tidy, a passion for vegetable growing, fit and healthy with a sharing/caring nature.

This is an exciting opportunity for a retired or semi retired couple who would like to stay in the Margaret River Region for the summer or longer, experiencing a rewarding rural lifestyle, sharing your day/ garden produce with the owners, holiday makers and other self contained travellers.

The owners, Benji and Helen are very hands on with everything on the farm, butchery, campground and studio accommodation, being done “in house”. We take great pride in the quality and cleanliness of our farm and stock and look forward to sharing this with you.
