    Description

    We are a family who run a farmstay with a farmhouse and a small cottage on 12 acres of scenic land near Alexandra,Vic. Families come to our farm to experience all our funny farm animals up close and personal.We have cows,sheep,goats,2 miniaturehorses,a multitude of chickens,ducks,turkeys,geese,and three dogs.Consequently there is a lot of work to do with the animals,cleaning the cottages,gardening and also one of many other projects underway.We have been recieving volunteers for 10 years and are also members on help x where we have more than 100 reviews. The accommodation for the helpers is in clean and comfortable caravans with access to the bathroom close. Helpers are part of our family whilst they are here and eat with us. The work is varied and from 8.30 to 12.00 each day and then at night to feed the animals and water the gardens being in the washing and such. We really value helpers that have some special skills but not necessary. Just a willing pair of hands and the ability to listen and learn. We try tone very fair with our helpers so expect a fair return in exchange.
