Learning & Fun




My days in Chesnuts Farm were amazing. I enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The landscape is really awesome!!! I fell very welcome by Linda&Jhon. They are people that worth it to know, very interested as well.

The job was good, I learned a lot of the chesnuts products and processes. I had the experience to live in a farm for the first time. I met also other backpackers. So I made friends in the place too.

I enjoyed very tasty food and healthy as well. I feel very safety and protected with them. For me it was like a family here in Australia.
They helped me a lot with everything.

Linda and John welcomed me very much. They are great hosts, always patient and willing to help and teach me. I felt like a part of the family.
I learned a lot from this experience.
I have greatly improved my English.
I learned to deal with animals.
I learned the process of making flour. And cooking them.
My food was very good.
I hope to come back one day to visit them and work again.
The farm is a very special place. I am eternally grateful for the moments I spent in chestnut Brae.

We thoroughly enjoyed having you stay on our farm Amanda. You were a delight to have around. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and wish you all the best in the future. Safe travels.



I don't even know how to express how much I liked the farm and John and Linda. They are one of kindest and nicest people I've met here in Australia. The work is very exiting and interesting and the meals are AWSOME. It's a great place if you like animals and nature. THANK YOU for the great time and experience. You really enriched my life :).

Florian you were a treasure and a delight to have on our farm. We really enjoyed your company and we are reminded of you every day when we go to FLOMO to check the eggs and the chickens. We do hope the rest of your travels were fun and safe. You are a wonderful young man and will do well werever you go. Thank you for coming to our farm.



It's been a wonderful experience, Linda and John are the best hosts you can hope for. They are very nice people and treated us like we were family. The farm it's beautiful in winter (no snakes or spiders hehehe) and Western Australia turned to be an amazing place to visit and get lost on its roads.

Miguel it was our pleasure to have you and Marta come to our farm. We talk about you both often recalling the fun times we had together. Also the time we got the pig tractor bogged in the mud and how you revelled in the challenge of getting it out again. We hope you are happy and well and enjoying life wherever you may be.



Amazing farm location and very friendly people. A lot of useful things I learned there. Nice experience!!! Beautiful Chestnut Brae Farm :)
