Malcolm and June Ross are returning their stock to their Ebor property 'Thuddungra' today thanks to BlazeAid and its mission to get productive properties back in use as soon as possible.
The farm, which has been owned by the Ross family for more than three decades, is sandwiched between Cathedral Rocks and Guy Fawkes National Parks and fell victim to the Bees Nest fire in early December.
"Our entire property was burned - the house was saved, and we managed to get the cattle off the property," said Mrs Ross.
"All the boundary fences were destroyed, and the BlazeAid fellows began fencing there about five days after the fire had been through which was wonderful.
"At the time you look at the job ahead you, you've taken all your cattle off and there's a raging drought, so we're handing feeding everything, and the BlazeAid fellows just said they'd be in to help, so we got the bulldozer straight in.
"The volunteers came in after that with such goodwill and good cheer. Different people come in each day with different skills, so it was also great to go up and see who was on each day.
"They can't have enough praise as far as I'm concerned."
Mrs Ross said she made cakes and biscuits to take to the volunteers.
"The people from Ebor made food donations to the BlazeAid Camp and got behind them because so many people in the community were affected," she said.

BlazeAid Ebor Camp coordinator Tony Samuels said they had about 70 properties on their list and had helped about 50 families to date - installing more than 90 km of fencing.
"We've had about 220 people volunteer here, and we'll be closing the camp on March 18 to send the gear further south to another camp," he said.
Mr Samuels won't be moving on to another camp just yet though.
In the last 11 months he has had only six days off - between setting up Ebor and closing the BlazeAid Camp in Tenterfield - before that, he was at at the Inverell Camp. He plans to take a short break before continuing his good work.
"I've been registered with BlazeAid for the past three years and during that time I've spent 15 months volunteering - the majority of which has been in the last year," he said.
BlazeAid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside the rural families, their volunteers help to rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed.
