  • Description

    Description

    Looking for a couple or two friends to help pick avocados starting around the 19th of July.
    Some paid work available and days towards 2nd year visa.

    We are Todd, Wiebke, Marlo and Millie. We live on an avocado and lime farm outside of Toowoomba (1.5 hrs from Brisbane). We have horses. And we also have a border collie named Pebbles.
    Wiebke works in accountancy and Todd is an aircraft engineer and works on helicopters. Todd is Australian and Wiebke grew up in Germany.
    We have both travelled a lot through Europe, South East Asia, Canada and Australia and we know how great it is to see a bit of the local life instead of one hostel after the other.
    You don't need to know anything about farming but as long as you give everything a try and your best effort then we are happy to have you.
    Your help would would include avocado picking, mulching and help around the farm.
    We prefer helpers that are good with children too.
