Help in the house
A small family run farm located in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland at Cambroon, 10mins drive from Kenilworth, 50mins from beaches of the Sunshine Coast and major towns like Noosa, Caloundra and Maroochydore. Australia Zoo is 45mins away and we are less than 2hours to Brisbane City.
Our farm is very diversified, we have a dairy dairy where we milk cows all year round. We also operate a true free range egg operation with laying chickens, we grow chickens for meat, have beef cows. bees for honey and lots of dogs.
We are looking for help (5 hours/day for 5 days/week) with jobs around the farm or help around our home. Whatever your expertise or interest we can find somewhere for you to help. Some of the jobs could include milking the cows, feeding calves, collecting eggs, packing eggs, general farm work, gardening, building and painting or if you prefer help around the house and cooking. If you are a keen gardener your skills would be advantageous in the development of our vegetable garden. A great attitude and a willingness to undertake some physical work and care for animals is most important.
Public transport is limited, but we can arrange to pick you up or give you a lift somewhere. Your own transport would be beneficial so you could explore our beautiful region, if you don't we do regularly go to town. Mobile phone is limited but we provide internet. Internet is satellite based so data limits are small and it can be slow, you are also welcome to use the WIFI at our home.
We prefer stays of a minimum of 2 weeks, longer is preferable. Please make sure you have checked google maps to see exactly where we are. Thank you, see you soon!
