Caroola Farm is a mixed permaculture, holistic management and organic farm. Our focus is on small scale meat, vegetable, fruit and nut production. We have chickens, ducks, pigs, sheep, alpacas, cattle and maremmas, alongside a market garden, tree systems, wetlands, forest gardens and more…
You will leave your volunteer residency with a working knowledge of the way we run our farm, an operational plan and budget.
We will take you through our business plan and work alongside you in your learning throughout the volunteer residency period. Our work is seasonal, but generally involves the following areas… in hot times there is less planting out and more watering, and in spring there may be more animal activities…
