Dalhousie Farm

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHello Intrepid Traveller! Dalhousie Farm is a small farm that produces pastured eggs, runs horses and cattle, has a small market garden and olive grove and is generally a fun place to be (well - I think so anyway!). It is run according to permaculture and agroecological principles (which I'm always learning about and improving). I'd love some extra help on the farm and there is plenty to do. There is many different tasks and projects to choose from depending on what you're skilled in or feel like doing. Gardening, fencing, animal keeping, horse work, fencing, cutting firewood, harvesting veggies, cooking, packing eggs - the list is endless and sometimes a little overwhelming! But I'm also keen to meet interesting and like minded people from around the world. It's hard to travel with the responsibility of the farm, so it would be nice to bring a little of the world to the farm! I have a comfortable mudbrick cottage with a guest room and separate bathroom for helpers. Single person or couple happy to share the room would be best.
