  • Description

    Description

    We have a 15 acre farm in southern Tasmania close to a town called Huonville right in the centre of the cherry and apple farming district.
    My husband and daughter live on the property along with 2 cats. We have many animals. Sheep, turkeys, chickens, ducks and quail. We are walking distance from public transport which is very convenient. There are local restaurants and bakery near by.
    The river is also walking distance from our farm.

    You will have experience managing a farm, working with sheep and poultry. See how fencing is done how to run irrigation systems and learn how to make cheese. See how baby chickens, turkey and ducks hatch.

    We are looking for a single person who is able to work in all ares of the farm. No previous experience is necessary. A helpful can do attitude is a good start. Gardening is essential on the farm as now is time to plant veggies and get the garden growing. Up keep of the yards and fences is also important. We have 2 dairy sheep so we need to construct a sheep dairy. We will need help with this project. The house needs constant maintenance and there are a few areas that need some structural work.
    Overall the day to day running of the farm would be part of your job. Feeding the animal, collecting the eggs, cleaning, watering, moving the grain to the chicken pens.
    Most of the work is light duties.

    What else ...

    When your chores are done as we are close to transport you can go by bus into Hobart where there is all you need for shopping, Movies, swimming the markets and bike riding.
    In Huonville there are local shops and cafes. The library and clothing stores. Places to fish, ride and swim.
    Having a drivers licence is not necessary but could be an advantage.
