Have you ever dreamt of waking up to the fresh smell of country air?
Our property is a half an hours drive to Ballarat (an old gold mining city) and has wonderful views of Mt Buninyong. We are only 45 mins from Geelong (surf cost).
We are a family farm, growing sheep for both wool and meat.
We would love for someone or a couple to come and help out. Lambs are coming and we could do with a bit of help with feeding.
We are very busy with our animals and farm work, so household duties, cooking and feeding the animals and basic farm help. If you’re good with handy person jobs, we also have things that need doing: gardening, cooking, painting, fencing, animal training, etc.
We have a menagerie of pets to cuddle and hang out with as well. Most of our pets have a story behind how they ended up here with us. 3 Horses, 3 ponies, chickens, ducks, dogs, a cat, calves, a cockatoo and some pet sheep.
There are plenty of experiences to be enjoyed including brief encounters with the visiting Australian Native wildlife as well you will learn some things about sheep farming and training animals.

Our focus for volunteer help is to assist with the daily routine tasks, feeding animals, gardening and general housework. We will never ask you to do anything that we wouldn't do ourselves.
