Courses on lifestyle and hobby farming

Lifestyle Farming Courses are perfect for those new to, or considering, a change to a rural or small scale agricultural lifestyle. Our short courses provide the knowledge, skills and self-confidence you need to get started working on your rural acreage while avoiding common pitfalls.

Conducted at two properties in Berry and Shoalhaven Heads on the beautiful NSW South Coast, courses generally run on weekends, or weekdays by special arrangement. We offer full day and half day courses dependant on the course content and subject matter.

Our courses are conducted by certified workplace trainers with extensive experience and knowledge on the various subject matters and, while not VETAB certified, the information and instructional material provided will be based on best practice, industry knowledge and relevant legislative requirements. Handouts are available for most sessions.

Hands on involvement by participants is encouraged wherever practicable and safe, and will be incorporated as deemed appropriate by the trainer, based on the individual circumstances of each course and nature of the activity.
