Surprise! We’ve opened up a farm stay! When we first bought our property, the house itself was relatively unimportant. Sure, we’d be living in it, but what we were interested in was the land, and what we could produce from it. We knew we wanted to have an organic, ethical and sustainable farm, and that was our focus. But we quickly realised that the house was huge, and that there was no way we needed all of it. So we’re offering an experience in a Mornington Peninsula Farm Stay.
We spent a fair bit of time renovating it, cleaning it up, and making it welcoming, with the idea of hosting WWOOFers and Workawayers on our farm. We are still interested in having volunteers come and stay, but we also decided to open up the space to people who want to have a chance to get away, and to take part in our little piece of paradise. If you’d like to experience a Mornington Peninsula Farm Stay you should definitely check us out! We’re less than an hour from Melbourne CBD, and close to Mornington’s cafes, restaurants and beaches.
Our Mornington Peninsula Farm Stay is complete with your own private entrance, kitchen, lounge and bathroom. There are two bedrooms, and enough beds to sleep 8 people if needed. It’s the perfect place to get away from the rat race, and get back to nature. Go for a walk in the nearby nature reserve (see if you can spot some kangaroos!). Meet our friendly farm animals. And in the evening, kick back and relax with the board games we provide. Have a look at our Farm Stay page, or contact us to check our availability and make a booking. We’re even on Airbnb.
We’ve had quite a few groups of people through now and they’ve all been fantastic. Chris, Claire and their three children were fantastic to host. The girls helped us collect the chook and duck eggs in the morning, and loved meeting the cows.
Kevy and her family were so interested in our sustainable, organic agriculture, keeping us on our toes with all their questions during a farm tour! Dion their young son was a bit worried about how big the cows were, but loved to chase the chooks, and patted some of our sheep.
We still have a long way to go here at Heritage Farm before our vision is complete- our fruit trees are still growing, our sheep breeding project just beginning, and the demand for our duck eggs is outweighing the supply. But we love to show off what we’ve already managed to achieve, and would love to welcome more guests.
