  • Description

    Description

    We have a toddler to look after, lots of pets, and the work is very varied. We are a young family with a relatively new farm, within walking distance along a bicycle path to the Tallangatta township, and a supermarket & other facilities. Our property consists of a hilly & picturesque 150 acres overlooking Lake Hume made up of grazing land , bushland & spring-fed dams. Livestock includes a traditional Belted Galloway stud cattle, Wiltshire Horn sheep & rare poultry breeds. Trial vegetable gardens & fruit orchards are also underway. Work includes working with livestock, planting, growing, maintenance of fruit trees & vegetable garden, general farm chores, building projects. Meat-based mixed diet, meals will be with family of 6 (includes 4 children aged 2-13), so basically you will become a member of our family. Can send more information on request.
